    Will netcode offer the ability to bring your own underlying transport? I've perused the latest docs and I don't see any facility for that.

    I intend to use the Steam Datagram Relay service[0] to transport packets between game peers (p2p) and servers (dedicated). It provides a UDP-like interface, and I'd like to use that with netcode, if possible.

    If I cannot use Steam SDR with netcode, I will not be able to use netcode in my game.

    Thanks!
