I've already posted about this, but I had an idea/question:

I've got a IIcx with fairly new (3/6 from wormhole) binaries and
kernel, and it's networked.  However, it can't deal with sending large
packets, where "large" seems to be somewhere above ~100 characters.

Now, I've noticed from snooping around in OSF that ifconfig allows an
option to specify MTU size.  I haven't been snooping around in the
sources much, so I was wondering if someone who has could answer this
question:  How much of a pain would it be to add such a feature?
Would this be worthwhile?

How many configurations of systems have this problem?
