For those who didn't bother to look at the tcplay site (the subject of
this thread :) it claims to be re-implemented based on the upstream
docs and a bunch of trial and error (they claim the upstream docs are
wrong or misleading in a number of places).
If it's truely a clean room re-implementation, hopefully it will be
acceptable license wise.
