One thing I mentioned off-list, but would be interested in a wider
opinion on, is how best to handle timers, eg., for retransmission.
What seems to be the best thought I have on this so far is to turn the
appropriate responses from the pure core into a "transmission thread"
that will transmit and then retransmit packets according to whatever
schedule is mandated, and will be cancelled by suitable subsequent
response from the pure core. But other suggestions (or examples)

Thanks for writing it -- I've found it useful to refer to while
refactoring https://github.com/mor1/ocaml-tftp, which I believe is now
a lot cleaner than it was as a result :)
