Right, I meant the example of checking a connection's "history" field for any lower-case letters should indicate the responding side sent some type of packet during the connection lifetime and wouldn't need special handling for UDP separately from TCP.

And if it's important to distinguish half-open TCP connections from ones that complete a 3-way handshake, "history" looks like it could do that, too.
