KISS mode does not even care about crc, that is done in the computer or 
whatever kiss aplication you are running, so convers mode would need the 
two frame buffer but kiss only needs one as the bare minimum.
So converse would be more likely to have buffer problems on recieve, 
however when sending the tc has no means to stop the computer from 
sending data and a kiss implementation can suffer from buffer overrun, I 
have even seen this happen in a tnc2 with tf2.7 in kissmode, sending a 
19k2 stream to a 1k2 kiss tnc doesn´t seem to work somehow :)
