I think there's value in having the part that shows how to disregard packets prior to the first RTT sample. The code clarifies the text here. The PR does leave the tricky part -- finding the largest loss period -- to implementers since that is very implementation specific.

@ianswett : other than that bit, are there other parts that you think are becoming implementation specific?

Note that in terms of actual code, this PR isn't much larger than the current code. There are large comments, which are useful I think.

I'm not wedded to this PR and I'm ok with @ianswett's suggestion; I don't think this PR is all that complex though.
