@ianswett : I agree that we compromised. I was just noting that the ideal solution might be to use an EWMA perhaps, but we're settling for simplicity right now. That has a cost... and these corner cases are that cost I think.

I'm tempted to suggest that we simply drop samples where the ack_delay does not make sense. This should not be the common case anyways.
