    A dream, maybe .... but hey so were most things that we now take for granted..
    Worth kicking around a bit tho...

    At a minimum you have to remember the MSS value given by the remote
    host in the initial SYN, it is impossible to avoid this and provide
    a TCP implementation of any level of quality.

    The foundations of this person's scheme simply cannot work.
