Hello highly respected PHP-team.

Thank you so much for the great improvements to version 7 and now, even 8 is out, that I don't know yet.

Having done research again, how to realize a safe simple mini-websocket-server, I have noticed that you did not care all too much about this topic recently.

So, please consider this:

Provide a core-functionality (so that shared hosting will always have it) with the handful of typical operations people need to realize a simple in/out/-websocket-server with PHP.

By focusing on the 80%-mainstream-usecases you might beat Node.JS both in speed and simplicity. You can focus on the essentials optimized as direct as possible with C and wow - that makes the next 30 years of global success to PHP ;)

Tow more arguments:

* The complete already existing socket-implementation is not affected and allows for the 20% special cases.

* Instead of leading your users somehow to the 'UNIX Socket FAQ' (thats great ok), you can provide high-level examples of a safe and fast Chat-servers. Whats more convincing?!

Thank you so much!

All (=) Love, Ernesto ~:)

This is too large of a request for a simple bug tracker. Please check out the internals mailing list.
