I think they are do save those that meet..

Except those where the RFC disagrees with practice or sense (reversing source
routes, tcp urgent).

Read is OK, write needs the work now.

> + Adding support for DHCP.
DHCP servers exist. Dunno if anyone has a client yet - usermode problem

> + Fix ICMP address mask request / reply.

Could do - nobody uses it. Adding stuff like the extended ICMP router discovery
might be better use of time.

> + Convert some network #ifdef's to sysctl()'s.

Definitely. The last few I had off Mike Shaver missed 2.0 alas.

> + Maybe implementing some sort of asynchronous I/O?

POSIX.4 signals, then put posix.4 aio in with clone.
