We need to figure that out for regular shim stuff anyway, though. When a

REALLY don't want to do congestion control the hard way... It has been
suggested in the past that a rehoming should trigger slow start, but I
remember someone disagreeing with this, don't remember why.
The two reasons I remember being stated for why slow-start isn't
necessary the obvious answer are:
- the transport protocol needs to be robust against the case when the
route in the network changes from a high to a low capacity one.
- Not all changes are for the worse; when going from a low to a high
capacity path then there is no need to make things go slower.
