> @kazuho up above you were concerned about a 10 second RTT sample due to bundling an ACK of an ACK. That should not be an issue because only when the largest acked is a retransmittable packet should an RTT sample taken.
> But now that I look at the text and pseudocode, the retransmittable qualification is missing, so I'll writeup a PR to fix that.

Thank you for the clarification and the PR. They make me less worried about the issue :-)
