Maybe, although SBCL sb-bsd-sockets uses :full by default itself, so it
depends how much backwards compatibility to ECL is wanted VS how much
SBCL compatibility (and indeed ECL backwards compatibility could be a
valid concern if there is enough code relying on the old behavior).

Also, I tested slime with CVS HEAD ECL with the attached slime diff and
it works fine again for me.  However this diff would probably have to
check against ext:+ecl-version-number+ ideally if it was to be part of
official slime so that it keeps working with old releases?
