Alan like crowing about the TCP stack he maintains / wrote parts
of. Whatever. Anyone who has ever been forced to try using the
Linux networking code *knows* how bad it can be.

The Net/3 stuff is definative in this world, and may as well be
the reference implementation for the rest of the world. What comes
next, especially with IPng is another matter of course. I hope
efforts like NetBSD and FreeBSD will take up the standard for this
in the future.
