Larry is being polite. It sucked.
It was never designed for it. dmr designed Streams to replace the tty
handler. I never understood why the Summit guys insisted on forcing
networking into it.

Right. This is one of the places where SVR4 != Solaris
I was researching a book a long time ago and looked at this. I had
Solaris, SVR4 and some other stuff at the time. Like you bit rot has long
set in on the details, but I do remember that the primary thing that
Solaris had was support for Sun's threading model and the networking code
had to be a first class citizen or it was not going to scale.
