Put simply: I am not interested in wasting _my_ time investigating cases
where UDP is performing badly if TCP is working fine. The variable
reliability issues with UDP are precisely why we worked to get the TCP
stuff working efficiently.

As for blanket statements like the above: I have seen no evidence yet
that they are any more warranted in 2.6.x than they were in 2.4.x. At
least not as long as I continue to see wire speed performance on reads
and writes on UDP on all my own test setups.
