Even Reno isn't intra-protocol fair (unless RTTs are equal).
Algorithms get implemented in Linux because someone takes the effort
to implement them, not because they have been shown to be good.
Lars is absolutely right that assessing based only on throughput is
missing the point of congestion control.
