When I said I recalled that they didn't do TCP because of excessive
overhead, I forgot to mention that my recollection could be wrong.
Also, I suspect you are correct w.r.t. the above statement. (ie. Sun's
official position vs something I heard.)

Anyhow, appologies if I gave the impression that I was correcting your
statement. My intent was just to throw out another statement that I
vaguely recalled someone an Sun stating.
