[MLton] Socket.connectNB on NetBSD

Ah, I understand what I was confused about: I didn't realize that connecting
to an IP address of 0.0.0.0 meant the same thing as localhost (or perhaps any
local interface). Any way, the notion of a connection to the local machine
blocking (or not blocking) seems to me to be correct either way. The
connecting case being justified because the kernel did not have to block. No
packets were sent, it just noticed that there was a port waiting and ran
through the connection itself.
Am I still missing something?
