The same unixFile objects that are used for normal files can
be used for sockets as well:

   | acceptor. action |

   acceptor: unixFile openTCPListenerOnPort: 8080.
   [ action: acceptor acceptConnection.
     action write:

<title>Not Implemented Yet</title>
<h1>Try Again When I Have Finished This Software!</h1>

     action close
   ] loop

Now try to aim your web browser at the machine you are running
this on, port 8080.

Not quite a working web server, but I how this gives you and idea
of how simple it is.
