what was it that the standard functions where lacking?
for ff_socket_nonblock() something like the following could be used:

int av_fcntl(int fd, int cmd, long arg){
    if(cmd == F_SETFL){
        int enable= !!(arg & O_NONBLOCK);
        ioctlsocket(socket, FIONBIO, &enable);
    return fcntl(fd, cmd, arg);

also i have significantly fewer objections to adding a
av_nonstd_socket_nonblock() or av_nonstd_resolve_host()
to libossupport than libavformat, that is if the need for such additions
has been demonstrated, so far though iam not convinced that the standard
functions are insufficient

I have often repented speaking, but never of holding my tongue.
