It would seem silly to simulate a bit by bit interface, so just come
up with an encapsulation of 1822 messages in TCP?

Two-octet count(*), plus 1822 leaders .....

(*) and if any out-of-band signals are required maybe some flag bits?

And if hooking up a network of simulated IMPs gets old, you could
write a single ARPAnet server program that multiple hosts connect to....
