to call receive_bytes directly with the exact number of bytes to
read, rather than the minimum. I know this has been discussed in the
past [1] but I'm not certain about the current status.
The way Nessus solves this is by having both 'max length' and 'min length' arguments to the recv() and recvfrom()-style 
functions. By setting them to the same value, you can receive an exact number of bytes. 

I've found it to be super handy!
