Has anyone modified the SLIP driver to do ``fair queueuing''? SLIP links
are sufficiently slow that a file transfer operation can make remote logins
exceedingly unpleasant. A queuer that favored short packets, or perhaps
one that did per-hostport queueing, would be helpful. (I know -- what I'm
really asking for is type-of-service support, but then I'd have to change
all of my applications, and perhaps my TCP/IPs, to request it.)
