Alex,

"a carefully designed network..." A network? But won't there be thousands of
them? Will they ALL be as reliable as you'd like?

I'm less persuaded that somehow datagrams are wrong and virtual circuits are
right, if that was what you meant in your note, than I am persuaded that
we need mechanisms which make apparent memory sharing a reality. Since
we need reliability mechanisms to do this SOMEWHERE in the design, I
certainly agree that if they aren't in the host, they must be in the
off-loaded part.
