Have you ruled out that these limitations aren't just the results of bugs or
plain inefficiencies in the code?

In general I'm in favor of adventures to improve performance. Doing
PACKET_MMAP style networking sounds like the TLS layer would also need some

clear-text only would feel a tad bit too much like 2016 or so! :-)
