This is a question/suggestion mainly directed to Olaf.
As you should already know there is a new LAN patch made by CnCNet. This LAN patch is fully open source, is being continuously improved, compatible with C&C 95, RA1 and RA2, and is - in contrary to the previous LAN patch, fully compatible to xwis and other online services.
The current RA2 client is not supporting the wsock32.dll - I don't know if this is done explicitly or if this is just a side effect. Anyways I think that it is at the time to re-add support for the wsock32.dll; I don't see any reasons against it.
What are your thoughts on this?
