which may yet be optimized to allow a cache of previous cookies so that
subsequent tcp sessions can begin with multisegment payloads in both
directions, but which already right now permits a DNS query (or HTTP query
i suppose) to be sent with the initial SYN as long as it fits in a single
packet.  RTT's, as it turns out, are bad for all kinds of reasons.

(there's a semi-private mailing list where this proposal is being
discussed, and a BSD kernel implementor is needed, william has running
code for linux but we want to do some multi-implementor interop testing.
if you're seriously interested in pursuing this approach, send me e-mail
and i'll add you to the mailing list where this is getting discussed.)
