Err, SCTP is that protocol that provides connectionless reliable
networking, right? Okay, that would be a good idea, but it would still
require patches from someone :)

If anyone is going to do this, make sure it can be disabled at compile
time as well as at run time. Not every operating system supports SCTP
yet, and I imagine you may also want to have a server that supports both
SCTP and TCP clients at the same time. Also, patches would have to be
against svn trunk, not against whatever is the latest "stable" version
out there.
