[Filip Hanik] 
I'd expect this API to change

    public abstract boolean canWrite();

if this returns true, and then I write 1MB of buffered data, what does the
system expect this to be non blocking?
The better signature would have been 
    public abstract int canWrite();

and at least return the number of free bytes we have in the response buffer
(configurable)
