This is sort of an immersive 3D fps flavor of poker. Which is to say that
this is a commercial-grade app that has to support >1000 users per server. 

The current version is written in Delphi and uses TCP and this presents a
whole bunch of problems with keeping the sockets open, handling
disconnects, etc.

Assuming that I indeed wanted to use RakNet and a binary protocol (or
just forget RakNet and assume my network code is in C) would you have any
input on my other questions?

    Thanks, Joel
