XBox Live is regular, routed IP, that doesn't even need to much work to
function from the wrong side of EvilConsumerBroadbandNAT.

I guess the point was talking about original non-360 Xbox games, some of
which supported 'LAN play' by hooking a lot of consoles together on the
same local network.  I have no idea what was sitting in the Ethernet
frames that wasn't routable.
