Sure, but I really believe a light *ping* is much better than a complete resend
to start with. It generates far less noise.

I agree to that, I sent it after rc6. I wasn't looking to get this merged during
this cycle, but was wondering if it got missed or something like that.

I still don't think that a simple Ping was that bad of an option, but its fine.
Take your time to review this, no issues.
