It's a good thing that write() doesn't convey information about send() succeeding so you can't trust it :).  You can't rely on send() succeeding to convey this information: send() can succeed but all that means is that data moved from your application into your kernel.

What you want to do is to have an application-level acknowledgement of the data that was sent.

AMP will provide this for you automatically; when the Deferred returned by callRemote fires, the other end has received and acknowledged the information.
