We aren't ignoring your situation, Adrian - Jeff and I are talking about how best to deal with the situation and your offer to help. This revision will indeed see some significant change in the oob/tcp component, mostly in the init and connect procedures.
The concern is that we want to leave open the possibility of putting this revision into 1.2 since it will have a major performance impact on both startup time and the max cluster size we can support. The IP6 code is scheduled for 1.3 and we don't know what the performance impact will look like - hence the hesitation. We are both a little buried at the moment with other crises, but I hope we can give you a more intelligent reply shortly.
