I think that you should change the description to say "Do not create TCP 
TIME_WAIT entries for local <-> local connections" (or something similar) 
to remove the ambiguity, and turn it on by default for 7.  This seems like 
a good idea, I'm jealous that I didn't think of it. :)

I'm still working on the local -> remote case, I haven't put any time into 
that until now.
