Okay, why do we make up new services and proxies, when simple acking would 
work just as well. And... would you use these proxies in s2s connections, 
too? All people who seek reliability would need them.

Okay, they can use http polling now, that's a proxy solution for the best 
cases. I'd rather improve the protocol that invent yet another proxy.
