Could their be either a linear sequence # as ASCII in the payload, or some means to track & compare sequence numbers with a sniffer like wireshark (could easily be binary w/ a wireshark decoder perhaps). This would be extremely useful when using iperf to test packet loss and investigate with raw packet data (as to where in the network loss is occurring). Presently doing this with the IP ID field, but with multiple streams this field quickly becomes useless.
