        All things considered, Van's congestion control enhancments
        are MUCH more important than the header-prediction changes.

I strongly agree. The congestion control enhancements will improve the
performance of the Internet for EVERYBODY, and will significantly improve
the THROUGHPUT for the enhanced TCP's over most real Internet paths. The
header-prediction changes only reduce the CPU OVERHEAD for the individual
system and are mostly important for a TCP operating over a high-speed
one-hop path, e.g., across a LAN.
