I actually imagined it would be more like your packet_write_fmt vs
packet_write_fmt_gently pair of functions. If you do not have an
immediate need for a non-gentle packet_write() right now, but you
still forsee that it is likely some other caller may want one, you
could still prepare for it by doing a static
packet_write_1((const int fd_out, const char *buf, size_t size, int
and make packet_write_gently() call it with gentle=1, without
actually introducing packet_write() nobody yet calls.
