No, I decided to stick with NAPI for the immediate future.  I'll
look up his work if/when I get time to do some more testing.

Probably not.  Much of it was obtained from Robert Olsson's
patch, and then I added some more tweaking.  It sounds like there
is little or no interest to support tulip NAPI in 2.4.X, so my
