understood! In that case I guess net related stuff should be delayed 
till after Jeff has finished ....

. .. with whatsoever he's doing ;)

I'd like to know more about DF's net stack/netisr handling and the goals 
in that area. I understand that your intention is to keep as much data 
as possible locally. Yet, this is very tricky (and extensive) work when 
it comes to protocol dependencies, routing code and alike. Per protocol 
lwkt & messaging is a way out (I guess), but at the expense of writing 
quite a bunch of net code from scratch ...

. .. so my basic question: Is this Jeff-only work for now? Are there any 
goals/prototypes, yet? Anything written down? If that's still "confi- 
dential" work, when will we you go public with this stuff?

Thanks for clues, pointers ... anything really.

Best regards,
