TCP question

From: Rajeev Bector (

    Is it possible in linux to queue up data on a socket before
a connection is established ? Also, if yes, then will the stack
take that data and try it to send it with the final ack of the
3-way handshake ?

If not, then, does anyone know why this feature is not
implemented. In case of web clients, it would reduce
one segment (since the URL will most likely travel with
the final ACK) and we are done.
