Wanted: C programmer

Checking on my semi-dead projects, I found that one was almost finished but I had forgotten about it: rater

In order to make it really useful, however, I need a C programmer that can turn this python program:

#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

import sys
from socket import *
serverHost = 'localhost'
serverPort = 1999

s = socket(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM)
s.connect((serverHost, serverPort))
print "Sending: ",' '.join(sys.argv[1:])
s.send(' '.join(sys.argv[1:])+"\n")
data = s.recv(1024)
sys.stderr.write(data)
sys.stderr.flush()
sys.exit(int(data.split(' ')[0]))

Into a nice function that never fails and never leaks memory (of course, it should return instead of exit, this is just example code ;-).

If that's done, I can release rater as a useful tool, which should find a home in many qmail installations (and maybe other uses).
