I don't *care* how the protocols work -- anything that consumes
gigabytes of client RAM to check out a NetBSD tree is not really suitable
for production use.  Any software that suddenly consumes gigabytes of
RAM because someone was so foolish as to use a particular network 
transport with it is not software I am interested in babysitting, on
client or server end -- it probably has other, similar design flaws I
will have to deal with later.
