I didn't ask about your remarks on the uIP coding style. Is asked
about the generalizations you see in uIP which you consider
unnecessary in your scenario!

As I have quite some experience in IP programming there might have
been a point where a generalization you consider unnecessary in fact
is necessary - so this was ment as an offer to help.

On the other hand if there are genralizations in uIP I would learn
from you being unnecessary in certain scenarios I could probably make
them optional - thus improving uIP.

I still I don't see what uIP puts into TCP which isn't necessary /
beneficial for a cc65 target machine (and which can't already be
configured away).

That's basically all I wanted to make sure. I personally would love to
if IP networking would be suited for a nice small library allowing to
easily add some IP functionality to an (existing) application. However
my experience tells me that this is not really possible.
