Should still be the same setup; except now more flows will be fighting for
the same bandwidth. TCP shares nicely -- so for n flows in the same class
allocated x bps total: when all are active over a long period of time, you
should see x/n bps for each flow; so as n goes up, the fair share of each
flow in the same class will go down.
