You're not between a rock and a hard place because you can sublcass
to specialize behavior, as you have already done :)

I do not believe shutdown calls should be added to RCommandClient or any
other class (they would actually wind up inside of SocketClient) because
it's not clear it is the desired default semantic---it is afterall the
OutputStream returned by Socket.getOutputStream()---(although it can
certainly be discussed and debated) and would also break JDK 1.2 and 1.1
compatibility.  Until it is agreed that support for those versions is being
abandoned, it would be unwise to put J2SE SDK 1.3+ specific code into the
source.  Right now, it is perfectly acceptable to subclass to achieve desired
behavior.  It is a class framework after all.
