	I will be looking into this.  I will be building a system
shortly that will be perfect to test this on.  As I have to setup a
lab to profile out new Athlon box I will add this to the planned

	So far on the list I have 

	Testing maxburst values on various flow levels.

	Testing HZ=2048 on packet scheduling.

BTW:  How does this all interact with multiple interfaces?  What
happens when the workload from say 4 100Mbit interfaces doing CBQ is
introduced?  What happens if JIFFIE < workload instead of JIFFIE >

As folks might have suspected, not much survives except roaches, 
and they don't carry large enough packets fast enough...
