Comment(by feynman):

 I experimented with nonblocking sockets and found that they clean up a lot
 of code. I decided to stick with them. The old code is in misc/blocking.

 I also added a feature in which clients and servers can only give out a
 maximum number of aliases. This helps scalability, and should help prevent
 a single connection from hogging too much bandwidth (since each alias can
 only provide 5kb/s). The aliases are chosen in such a way that all the
 aliases share connections pretty evenly.
