Hi Scott,

Anyone who has bridged an ethernet via a TCP based IPSec tunnel
understands that layers are recursive.

John Day has been chasing this notion long enough to write three
network stacks. If it works and isn't obviously inferior in its
operational resource consumption, where's the proof-of-concept code?

The last time this was discussed in the Routing Research Group, none
of the proponents were able to adequately describe how to build a
translation/forwarding table in the routers or whatever passes for
routers in this design.
