so why does Linux implement this at the kernel level?  easier? more efficient?
i may check out the serial line balancing in the linux kernel and see about
modifying pppd to do it.  i'm sure i'd make a lot of people happy if i could
get line balancing in pppd for them to use on any platform!!  on that note, is
there any sort of "standard" for line balancing?  what would i need to know
ahead of time before i even start?  thanks.
