Thanks Randall.

Yeah, I now remember looking at it briefly. More info:

The whole idea is indeed...interesting. In simple terms instead of
reducing cwnd on (perceived) loss or congestion event, idea is to try
and experiment with different sending rates and compare the results
(based on what you are looking for in a connection) to see which of the
approached helped you achieve best outcome.

I've yet to go through all the details in the paper. But their claims
seem very promising based on whatever testing they've done using the
prototype implementation in userspace on top of UDP. Not sure if we can
easily port the implementation into our modular CC framework.
