i don't think beep has enough in it to solve the byzantine generals'
problem.

so, i think it wise that implementations try to avoid the problem
altogether.

for example, you shouldn't start the TLS profile if you have something
outstanding. this applies both to the peer who sends the start and the peer
who receives the start.

similarly, once a TLS channel is started, each peer shouldn't allow other
channels to be started or to send traffic.
