I'm sorry, but this has not been my experience at all.  I first noticed
these problems when connecting to Solaris and Irix boxes.

I'd like to point out that in my particular case, turning off VJ header
compression made everything work, and the performance between NetBSD and
Solaris/Irix boxes is now comparable.  If you could give more exact info
on why you think the NetBSD rfc1323 implementation is "sub-optimal", I'd
like to hear it.  But in all honestly, every problem I've ever heard that
was caused by rfc1323 IP options was always the fault of some intervening
system, not the NetBSD system itself.
