I've just been re-reading Joe Armstrong's thesis, and I'm reminded of a
question that's been nagging me.

order IS. So how, exactly does that work? What's the underlying
mechanism that imposes sequencing, but allows messages to get lost?
(Particularly across a network.) What are the various scenarios at play?
