Stefan's argument to me is thus "If we're already going to ignore
sideband packets here, why not go all the way and make variable length
packets and send a single packet of a maximum length? Doing thus will
solve some set of future problems nicely and makes this code easier."
I'm not sure I agree myself, but that's the logic as I understand it.
