Uh, no. TCP streams are streams. You might look into TCP window sizes, though i doubt they need to be tuned for typical transfers.

Basically, sending data as fast as the socket accepts it should be enough.

Or we could couple/force utf8 with utf8 nick and descr. This way, a client using utf8 will appear garbled until it chats, when the other clients catches the 0xA0, and flags that this client is using utf8, ungarbling the nick and descr.
