Where to put non-Actor based classes

I'm working on a AIR app which uses a socket to send data from the AIR app to a Flex web app. I'm creating my own Socket class (extending the flash.net.socket class), my question is where should classes like this, which are not Models, Services or mediators go in a RobotLegs application.
I was thinking of creating a utility folder under my services folder, and putting my Socket class there, but I think that ties this socket class to closely to the service layer?

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Stephen

    Sounds like a service to me. You don't have to extend Actor for something to be a service.

    Hi Shaun,

    Yes, I've just re-read the Best Practices doc for RL, in particular the services section. It does describe what I want to do as a service.
