Exactly... :)

The protocol specification of MPTCP is not stable yet 
(http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-mptcp-multiaddressed/).

Also, all the features are not yet in our implementation (e.g., IPv6-support 
and dual IPv4/IPv6-support), and it is necessary to make our implementation 
less intrusive to the regular TCP/IP-stack.

However, as developper-resources are limited this will still take quite some 
time... ;)

Cheers,
Christoph
