Hi Laurence,

RE> why would you not sent the reply out the same spigot you go the request

Yes, that exactly what I was trying to ask in the e-mail (in a much more
verbose way than you :-).

The problems I could think of are:

- It only works for inbound TCP connections.

- The TCP connections might be dropped after a topology change despite the
existence of an alternative path.

I was wondering if anyone else knows of any additional problems.
