now as async is here and we've got Gabriele, Romano, Maarten active and
well skilled in REBOL TCP issues, there might be some way. IIRC, other
way was Uniserve, but Doc has not finished it yet. IIRC Doc told me
there is some "rsync"? protocol and he iirc even tried to write it in
rebol, but don't know about the results.
