Exciting!  Refactoring the network code is something that has been needed for a while.  Code can be modernized because much of it hasn’t been touched since we were using VS2005 and other old compilers.  Some things can maybe be removed, some things can be refactored, and many tests need to be added.  Sorry I don’t have any concrete examples, but I’m interested in assisting this work.
