You can see it that way, or more precisely, [netsend] blocks because it's 
trying to queue more commands, but the command queue is already full, 
because [netsend] hasn't got a confirmation that the packets were safely 
sent, which can be due either to a slow network or because the receiver 
socket's buffer is full because the Tcl program is too slow at processing 
the requests.
