[ih] NCP, TCP/IP question

Which was also used for NCP.  A twist on that story is that Bob Bressler
first wrote an NCP for ITS together with Bob Metcalfe for the Dynamic
Modeling PDP-6.  However, rather than accepting that code into ITS the
AI lab people rewrote it more to their liking.  So in a sense that was a
second NCP for ITS.
