This is necessary for the recipient to be able to reliably tell calls from different senders apart. The sender ID can be e.g. task ID.

You can tell calls from different senders apart since they come from different connections. What you really want to is to know when two connections are from the same caller task. So maybe we could consider alternatives to including task ID in each call.

  • a system call to determine task ID given phone hash of an incoming connection
  • embedding it somehow into the CONNECT message
