Library proposal?

I'm wondering how hard something like this would be to do?

Write a library function called "server_start".  Depending on
parameters passed to it, it could either:

Just run, assuming that STDIN/STDOUT were attached correctly.
Run in daemon mode, and fork for every new connection.
Prefork a certain number of connections, and hand control off.
(riskier, but suitable for gopher, whois, http) spawn a new thread or pre/spawn 

The idea is that (file descriptors?  library routines?) would be
provided for input and output to make that transparent.
