missing methods in java.net.Socket

java.net.Socket is missing several methods:
Returns setting for SO_LINGER.
Returns setting for SO_TIMEOUT.
Enable/disable SO_LINGER with the specified linger time.
Enable/disable SO_TIMEOUT with the specified timeout, in
Tests if TCP_NODELAY is enabled.
Enable/disable TCP_NODELAY (disable/enable Nagle's algorithm).
I have started to look at implementing them. They should be trivial
since PlainSocketImpl already has socketSetOption and socketGetOption
methods. But those methods currently have a comment in them claiming
that the SO_TIMEOUT option will be handled by Java. Specifically:
case java_net_SocketOptions_SO_BINDADDR: /* JAVA takes care */
case java_net_SocketOptions_SO_TIMEOUT: /* JAVA takes care */
That doesn't appear to be the case. Am I confused? Should I go ahead
and fix this? Or is there already a fix for this in the current source
tree? I am looking at 1.0.b1.
I also noticed that PlainSocketImpl is not declared to implement
SocketOptions. But in fact it does implement the interface.
