You can of course run uucp over TCP, but that means
running an error
correcting protocol over an already reliable protocol. In a word, yuck.
But of course you also gain the benifit of using a protocol that can incorporate
compression, which can be a saviour on low-speed links, like rural dialup
customers. In a word, nice.
Just my $0.02 :)
