Ahhh, as a third party module, yes I would strongly support that.  Providing
base tcp, udp, maybe even the lightweight telnet 'protocol' without the specific
glue to do anything in particular could all be good core features.  I mention the
lightweight telnet implementation only because it is a common denominator
to several protocols, smtp, ftp etc.

Implementing pop3/smtp, or even http over udp in the core was what I was
suggesting we avoid ... as you say, third party add ons (or ASF module
subprojects) for the big stuff is the way to go for those implementations.
