True, but I'd rather not use TCP transport. UDP seems to be much 
smoother, especially when there are traffic congestions.

I wish there was a way to encapsulate UDP packets in a thin TCP layer, 
but bypassing the TCP retransmit and stuff like that. Essentially, just 
masquerade as TCP for the firewall's sake, but don't really do all the 
TCP stuff at the transport level.
