You should add that everything above tcp/ip is practically open source ;)
Written in rebol and rebol can be converted back to sourcecode.
It may even be possible to save the 2.6.2-protocols and load them in 2.5.1,
i do not know how much they changed.
Doing that i leave to the people who are more familiar with protocols ;)
