But we recently had a long impassioned plea ("UDP lite") from people
who want something *less* resilient.  Once you wire in something
"too powerful", you can't take it out.

In the other direction, wouldn't you hope your bank (or your
hospital!) is using more powerful error detection than your netnews
server or your cellular phone?
