so far so good.  surprisingly few stateful firewalls blast away TCP options
especially the ones that require an extension that puts some of them where
the payload usually is.  

in testing thus far, this stuff gets through when UDP/53 does not and when
a new protocol like SCTP (which i'd otherwise have preferred) would not.
