TCP would be really convenient!  It would also enable cooperation
between NNCP nodes that use the new integrated Yggdrasil code, and NNCP
nodes that have a standalone Yggdrasil node and simply listen on a port
that's available over Yggdrasil (as I already have been doing here).

I have been working to get the quux public relay available on Yggdrasil,
and being able to not have to say "this way for TCP with standlone, that
way for uTP with integrated" would be really nice.

If a change to TCP is imminent, perhaps I will hold off packaging and
uploading 8.1.0 to Debian so as to not introduce something that will
shortly be replaced over there.

Got it, thanks!
