I agree with Ian's point. At the moment I can only see patch 5/5 modifying
this file (adding documentation); from my reading of RFC 4828/5622 it seems
not necessary to use 'tfrc_sp' variants of the functions computing X.

The situation will be better as soon as the patches are in their own subtree.
Currently there is a benefit in using separate files: the tfrc library does
not support a sender-based variant of TFRC, hence requires further work
and/or
a decision to support a sender-bsed variant of CCID-3/4 only in an
experimental subtree - this requires input and discussion.
