	Well, if you do not need SQM it should be possible to disable it, or? And since you need to put in some vaules to make it work we can not really start it with defaults that work for everyone (yet…)

	It should be easy to switch this around (even though mu track record in making such changes is a bit spotty :)), but we need the user to at least specify up- and download rates for SQM to work as expected…
