Okay, you're right. RTTs are not a red herring, because yet ANOTHER
unfixed bug in my Brand X workstation (and widespread on the net)
is the incorrect computation of round trip time from the last transmission
to the first ACK of a sequence number. Fix this one, throw in the Nagle
algorithm, and set the initial RTT to a reasonable value like 5-10 sec,
and I think we'll be in good shape for quite some time.
