I use it with {ssh,netcat,telnet,tlsdate} on a daily basis. I used to
use it with pidgin before I stopped using pidgin for anything other than
OTR development.

I plan to use it as a library for anonymous socket calls during future
development - this should allow me to remove all calls to socket() or
connect() from say, tlsdate. Robert and I started working on this a
while ago but we were both sidetracked.

All the best,
