A retransmit over TCP would be unexpected client behavior (a genuinely
new request would have a difference nonce, and at least the MIT client
code never retries a TCP request).  But in theory, if we get one of
those over TCP, we should either process it or close the TCP connection.

There are other circumstances where we drop a request; I'd have to check
to make sure we do the right thing if the request came in via TCP.
