Yes, I know that.

The point being that the answer to one of the OP sub-problems [the one
quoted _partially_ above], can be to either use:
- pthread_cancel() [overkill, I know, but nonetheless a solution]
- non-blocking sockets [not very code-efficient IMHO if you only want to
exit an application gracefully (high code versus ouput ratio)]
- something different (one can try experimenting with shutting down the
listening socket, using signals, ... but I haven't done so, so I can't
give any feedback on this)
