Also UDP, T/TCP (a nice candidate for messaging, actually; Rich Stevens was interested enough to treat it more extensively than any of the other alternatives), and potentially, let's see ... ISODE, NetBIOS-dgram, SNA RH, SPX, ISO TP, NSP, SPP, PEP, VSPC, VIPC, and probably DDP in the apple stack. Maybe NetBEUI if you're feeling generous. TP0, TP1, TP2, TP3, and TP4 if you take ISO seriously. DDP is amusing here because it's such a different architecture, with the "tcp guarantees" a layer or so lower in the stack. HTTP can, in theory, run over any of these protocols. Granted, you'd have to create something that could connect-the-packets for the datagram oriented protocols, such as UDP, but it could be done (and given the statelessness of HTTP, it would make an awful lot of sense ... Stevens suggested that T/TCP was an ideal vehicle for HTTP). Presumably, you could do interesting things with HTTP over PGM. It would be an amusing thing to try, in any event. Amy!

I know you don't want either to give or to take. You've tried being the giver, and you've found that the giver is always fooled. And you won't be the taker, because that's very difficult, and because you know that the taker always ends by hating the giver. You don't want ever again to have to depend for happiness on another person. -- Lord Peter Wimsey
