Why don't we make the new versions of SLIP upwards compatible? Add a
negotiation feature to SLIP that will be ignored by the current
implementations (such as a packet shorter that the minimum IP header size),
and then negotiate the use of such things as checksum, CRC, header
compression, etc. Everything can just default to the current SLIP usage.
