':' in *any* Unix paths is not wise because its already used by $PATH.
Likewise ';' is already occupied by version file systems.

The other problems I see is:
How can the script get access to the data returned by accept()? Unlike
ksh93 bash4 has no compound variables yet.
How can the accept() socket be passed to a child process so that
request processing can be passed to a fork()ed child process?
