Also, the changes that have gone into chan_sip *after* 1.6.0 are much
larger and much more invasive than the TCP/TLS changes were, and they
directly affect the existing UDP support. We need to be very careful
here when saying that the TCP/TLS code might be the reason for the
current known (and unknown issues), when the testing was done using code
that has moved far beyond the 1.6.0 release already.
