At least according to SBCL's documentation string for SOCKET-ACCEPT, it
also doesn't send the port number as a third value.  I'll try to talk
to SBCL developers about if they want this too, afterall ECL's socket
layer would only be fully compatible with SBCL's if both did it, even
if I think this change would not break old code.
