well, this wouldn't really tell you that the path is working for
Node A could be sending and receiving while there is a failure, but
in that case, B wouldn't be receiving data. So if both sides do this,
it works well.

there is significant packet loss, but enough packets make it so the
shim doesn't see the problem?)
