As you introduced _gently in 3/13, the latter is no longer a valid
excuse to add this function. Just remove the sentence "Second, ...".

It may not matter all that much, but from code-reader's point of
view, when you know packet_write_buffer will contain things A and
B in this order, and when you have enough information to compute A
before stasrting to fill packet_write_buffer, I would prefer to
see you actually fill the buffer in that natural order.
Do you anticipate future need of non-gently variant of this
function? If so, perhaps a helper that takes a boolean "am I
working for the gently variant?" may help share more code.
