Gee, Alex, since you seem to know everything (in addition to being smarter
than all the early Internet people put together), perhaps you can explain to
me what ICMP type 4 messages are supposed to do...

(And, for the rest of you, does anyone know how CYCLADES handled congestion?
I have the CYCLADES book, so I could go look it up, but I was hoping someone
could save me the trouble.)

I would cheerfully say what I really think, but alas, I'm afraid the list
maintainers would likely chastise me (rightly) for ad hominem attacks.
