Does Freebooters on the Frontier REPLACE Funnel World or does it supplement it? The blurbs for FotF reference FW but it is unclear what exactly the relationship is.

It's set up so that you can take characters you generate in Funnel World and then (if they survive) upgrade them into a Fighter/Cleric/Thief/Wizard from Freebooters.

The stats & bonuses are the same, the racial moves are the same, etc.

An alternative to `unsafe-replace`-evt` is to create a new thread (using `thread/suspend-to-kill`) to manage the socket. The thread would wait on the "maybe ready to accept" event, use the polling operation to actually receive a connection if possible, and then serve a received connection out through a channel. The event-based version of accept would use `guard-evt` and `thread-resume` for kill safety to make sure that the manager thread has the right to run.

An advantage of `unsafe-replace-evt` is that it can work with multiple references (possibly in different places) to the underlying socket, since unreceived connections stay in the socket instead of the manager thread. If there are no other references to the socket – that is, if you can move into the CML world early enough – than CML provides the needed building blocks.
