Don't want identification. I want point to point response capability, even if it goes away
later... a way to know that I can send back to that exact address and know it went to that
particular computer instead of randomly going all over the world. Sounds like either I have
been misinformed about how packets are sent, or a LOT of programmers simply do not know the
truth! 2-way handshaking requires session identification ALL the way back to its source.

Heck, I don't even trust MYSELF that much.
