I mean that I2P has a numbered protocol system (like IP protocol
numbers). Currently we only have three protocols defined: streaming (our
TCP-like protocol), repliable datagrams (our UDP-like protocol) and
non-repliable/raw datagrams (c/f raw sockets). Our higher-level APIs map
clearnet TCP data onto streaming, and clearnet UDP data onto repliable

It is relatively easy to use repliable or raw datagrams as a conduit for
any other protocol. That's how i2tun is implemented.
