This is a very bad mentality to have, a rushed protocol is a doomed 
protocol IMO, I dont understand the people here who are trying to rush 
this through without listening to objections.

Also to the people who say you have to wait for a TCP timeout before 
trying the next step (typically 60 seconds) why not implement a manual 
timer of say 10-20 seconds, if a connection is not established after 
that kind of a period of time IMO it probably wont, most connections 
should happen pretty quickly.
