Back when I was on core and looked after the network stack, I went
around several times with multiple people saying ``please, we would
love this code, if only it weren't based on a two-year-old kernel!''
I started my own SACK implementation back in 1996, but it was never
finished. (It got caught up in a rewrite of the TCP retransmit queue
that proved too difficult to implement.)
