Bill,

At least the new Jacobson/Karels TCP does listen to source-quench and the
present NSFNET Backbone system does generate them. According to good-faith
info, the new NSFNET Backbone should generate source-quench in a repsonsible
way within the next few months. I would suggest you beat on your vendor
with this message. I should point out the present system is a far way from
optimally tuned and that ongoing research here at UDel shows this tuning
may not be easy; however, the handles are there and our experience shows
they do work.

Dave
