FWIW PAN has a whole host of debug command line options incl.
--debug-sockets.  There are a couple other --debug-x type options in the
pan --help output that you may well be interested in, if there's any
question remaining on just how efficient PAN IS on the various aspects. 
I'm sure any help you may be able to provide in that area would be
appreciated, altho I can safely say there's been a LOT of work done
already, and it does show, as compared to when I first used PAN @ 0.11.x.
