Oh, I have more bandwidth than AFS can possibly consume without a *lot* 
of parallization.  Every night my cross-cell volume replication scripts 
dump 10-100 volumes across the Atlantic, up to 20 at once, and never tip 
our bandwidth usage up over 120Mb/s (we're capped at 155Mb/s).  The 
latency, however, plays hob with anything that does its own windowing.
