It would be nice to have an option to enable SO_REUSEADDR on outgoing 
connections which are bound to a specific address. Yes, even on Windows, for 
people who are willing to read up on it.
Currently, there is no stage in the user code where such a flag could be set on 
the socket.

On POSIX this would indeed be nice (it should be the default behavior, in fact). I don't think it should be set on Windows, though (nor should it exist as an option, as long as it does not exist as an option for listening TCP sockets, for the same reasons).
