Speaking of misunderstandings, please be aware that I'm NOT one of
SUPDUP's advocates. Just trying to "call for the order of the day" by
asking for an explanation (which I'd still appreciate getting) of how
windowing sorts of things minimize number of transmissions. If, however,
your point is that the need for progress outweighs the need to avoid
being charged for each character typed, so that windowing protocols
should become the focus of the discussion irrespective of their
properties in the cost dimension, I'm inclined to duly note it and
repeat my question to everybody else as to whether a genuinely
simple fix to RCTE (whether the protocol or the implementations)
wouldn't be worthwhile, in context.
