I personally don't think the argument can be made that we're too late in the game to make changes that effect the handshake when we just merged a PR that completely rewrites the whole Retry path. That's a huge change! All because folks argued that UDP checksum was not enough. This is like a 15 minute code change. That Retry change is at least half a day most likely. Also, it's not purely a cosmetic change, since it removes an extra (and unnecessary) list length.
