is "configuration nightmare", where integration requires configuring so
many knobs that nobody realistically can do it anyway. That's why an
idea of "reasonable assumption" that if BSD Sockets API is enabled,
that we can grow each and every existing net_context structure by dozen
of bytes instead of introducing a special entity just for them.
In either case, detailed discussion of this matter is a bit premature.
Let's wait when it comes to actually making changes to Zephyr tree,
the current stage of work is being able to achieve BSD Sockets like
behavior out of tree, and there're enough things to discuss there
first (will post topics to the mailing list soon).
