I did that because when packet_write_stream_with_flush_from_fd()
calls packet_write_gently() then buf is actually packet_write_buffer:
Therefore I would override the first 4 bytes. However, the code evolved for
some reason in that way but looking at it now I think that is an obscure,
likely meaningless optimization. I'll use a separate buffer in
packet_write_stream_with_flush_from_fd() and then fix the order here
following your advice.

With helper you mean "an additional boolean parameter"? I don't
see a need for a non-gently variant right now but I will
add this parameter if you think it is a good idea. How would the
signature look like?
int packet_write_gently(const int fd_out, const char *buf, size_t size, int
This would follow type_from_string_gently() in object.h.
