i'm not a network expert, but the underlying protocol seems simple and
well designed

"In contrast to other protocols, IL avoids blind retransmission. This
helps performance in congested networks, where blind retransmission
could cause further congestion. Like TCP, IL has adaptive timeouts, so
the protocol performs well both on the Internet and on local
Ethernets. A round-trip timer is used to calculate acknowledge and
retransmission times that match the network speed."

"After 300 times the round trip time [..], the sender gives up and
assumes the connection is dead."
