We have a tool that will look for SYN packets that do not get followed with
ACK and clean the half open connections by sending a RST packet.  This
unclogs the port and allows legitimate connections to happen.  This tool

Nice idea for a tool. Read RFC 1337 "Time wait assassination hazards".
Discuss the data loss issues.
