And a different one called libgnetwork IIRC. Both are in GNOME CVS I
think, but libgnetwork has users in the platform if I'm not mistaken.

>From libgnetwork's README:
GNetwork is a networking wrapper written in pure C against the
Glib/GObject object framework.

  GLib 2.3+ with thread support
  GConf 2.0
Optional SSL support:
  GNUTLS 0.7 (recommended) or OpenSSL 0.9.6.

The intention here is to provide a useful and easy-to-develop-against
sockets wrapper for GNOME2 & GTK+ 2.0 programs which require TCP/IP
connection capabilities. It can be used by programs which do not use
GNOME or GTK+ anyways,however. It is NOT recommended or intended for
high-load server situations, just user applications which need TCP/IP
networking. Proxies are supported completely transparently, using the
same settings as gnome-vfs.
