[Cerowrt-devel] Upper routing throughput limit

When link speeds get high enough, do we still need to shape the download for 
home users? at some point you stop saturating the line.

the 3800 can easily handle 100mb if it's not trying to shape the traffic, is it 
worth seeing if there's any way to squeeze that shaping overhead down?
