I wasn't aware of this, and the feedback I got didn't indicate
any such problems.

I tried looking at the existing wrappers, and I think I could add the
missing functions -- but I have no way of testing it.

If I understand the code correctly, I have to define the wrappers in w32.c
and add the new functions to nt/inc/socket.h.  I assume I can use e.g.
sys_connect as a skeleton for the new wrappers.  Anything else I need
to be aware of?
