This reads much like Reed-Solomon Error Correction, although it is a
good way to reconstruct lost data it introduces a network overhead and a
performance impact due to the reconstruction. The analysis states: "*the
receiver will receive at least 10 linear combinations to decode the
original 10 packets.*" Which reads to me as we need 10 packets of error
correction data to reconstruct 10 packets.
The only advantage I can see here, is that it would outperform UDP. :)
