Wouldn't it be better to simply use typedef'ed' data types in all such cases
where they are dependent on eachother and dependent on eachother's

ie: typedef-ing SOCKSTRUCT to socket_t  and setting anywhere you would use
socket_t to SOCKSTRUCT?

Just a suggestion.  It'd certainly make the coder's task a bit simpler (and
reduce a couple of seconds in find/replace jobs).


PS: Voyager's Season 7 Premiere was awesome, but it sucks that they didn't
play out the whole Borg assimilation thing, and keep the Capt, Tuvok, and
B'Elenna as'd be cool to see how they'd get out of that situation,
or better yet, how they'd take advantage of it (ie: take over a ship with
transwarp and use it to get home)
