has no congestion controls. I was hearing some good things about the
overall microvm concept (see here:


) so I briefly took a look at the code.

/// The current implementation does not do any kind of congestion
control, expects segments to
/// arrive in order, triggers a retransmission after the first
duplicate `ACK`, and relies on the
/// user to supply an opaque `u64` timestamp value when invoking send
or receive functionality. The
/// timestamps must be non-decreasing, and are mainly used for
retransmission timeouts.


This song goes out to all the folk that thought Stadia would work:
