This works for me now, could you please take a look? What do you think about the names sync vs. blocking/nonblocking?

I suggest to provide a mechanism to change the blocking property of a SOCKET_INPUT_OUTPUT_STREAM after connecting to the stream.

This could solve my problem with a network stream, which has a mixed usage:

First a textual login mechanism, where the client has to answer a password propmt (for this blocking access ist the expected behaivour).

Afterwards the stream is switch to a binary mode, which transfers data from time to time, Here I need non-blocking behavior to be able to use the sequencer to react on input, while doing other things...
