Josh:

In addition to TCP, there are quite a few protocols defined over IP
(raw datagrams) and over UDP (user datagrams) that do provide reliable
information delivery.

For example see:

VMTP RFC-1045
NETBLT RFC-998
IRTP RFC-938
RDP RFC-908

DOMAINS RFC-1034
TFTP RFC-783

In addition, TCP may still be the answer, since it has been pretty well
tested and tweeked by now (and we are still learning things), why go through
that with a new protocol?
