Hi Jason

I can understand that. But on the flip side, CAKE reached something
like version 19 before it got merged. Wireguard is looking similar.
An addition like the above, is not controversial. You could submit
such a single patch in a weeks time when net-next reopens, and
probably version 1 or 2 will get accepted.
