Tc's stab (size table) method really is not so bad as long as you do not need to account for ATM cells; cake' s in build overhead accounting is not necessarily better for non-atm links. That said it is still on my to-do list to switch sqm-scripts to use cake' native method as the default if cake is used. But since the default to stab seems to work just as well and is rather universal (and cake' s whole overhead handling is massively under-documented) I never really got around to implement this...
I prefer to keep all the manipulation in one module....I'd like to think
it more cpu and cache efficient. Whether cake's add/mul/div calculation
in the case of atm framing as faster than stab's memory table &
potential cache miss is one for the clever people.
