It shouldn't end in CRLF. For that matter, you might as well do what
CHAOS did: add arguments to the 'contact name'. You could even use the
urgent pointer to delimit the end of the contact/name arguments!

In the CHAOS protocol, there is only one type of connection: you connect
with a packet that has contact name and arguments. There is no
'datagram equivalent'.

I guess I'm not sure what the UDP problem is, possibly because I don't
know how UDP connections get started. Isn't there a 'first' packet that
can include the contact name?
