Does knowing the rough connection speed help the calculation at all?  If so,
perhaps it could be made an optional .arch-params parameter (it would be only
a hint of course, since both ends of the connection matter, but for those of
us using a 56K dialup, the maximum speed is all too obvious :-).

I think for my usage, 50 is way too low, BTW, but I don't have any hard data
to back it up.  Hmmm, maybe I ought to do some timing (it's just annoying
because it's _always_ excruciatingly slow, and I'm really measuring which way
is more excruciating).
