Oh yeah, layer 6.  The real famous one.  Sure, whatever you say.

Seriously, you're probably right about the level -- I was just guessing.

Hi Roger,

I think that's a fine definition of reliable messaging, but I disagree that
what you've described is at the application layer, because the definition is
independant of any application semantic.  Or in other words, all messages,
independant of their application layer meaning, are treated equivalently.
To me, that's more of a layer 6 protocol.
