[p2p-hackers] TCP over UDP "magic number" questions

Hi David,

Implementing some subset of TCP's features over UDP seems to be a fairly 
common problem - do you think it might be a useful area for 
standardisation? DCCP and SCTP address similar problems but they can't 
easily be bundled with an application - would a congestion-controlled, 
optionally reliable, optionally ordered, NAT-aware, userland transport 
layer be a useful building block for the P2P community?

Cheers,
Michael
