Appropriately, we had an unexpected (to me) total ordering of messages
about totally ordering messages :-)
I believe sending multiple times comes would come in if the protocol
rejects messages which doesn't reference the most recently included
message, as opposed to keeping them in a queue and publishing them later.
Re-sending seems like a slight improvement because it gives clients the
option of not re-sending if their message no longer makes sense (though
most clients will likely be configured to re-send, as its easier).
