Well, the more time the developers spend on talking and discussing, the 
longer it'll take to fix this. Besides, NAT isn't the most critical 
feature for customers.

And to state the obvious: the mentioned hack won't ever make it into the 
sources, as it both has unwanted side effects and doesn't fix the actual 
problem. It's simply a mysterious workaround.

The latest SVN code has seen some networking changes, which may (or may 
not) affect the NAT speed.
