more rightly, we have the tools provided, so if the only tool we have is a
pogo stick, well, what does the problem look like?

in the fb community lot's have people have released code and tools, and
taken time to give advice, those are our tools. if you think that we're
lacking TCP/IP tools [and i don't intend to contradict you on that point],
then decide what you'd need and start making it; then post the code and
bully, incite and bribe others to help you until you get it right. make the
code open source, but organised, so that others can get a head start and
encourage others to send you new features and corrections. then you'll start
getting a swiss army knife... but that's a different story.

congrats on your patience and success, btw,
