To an extent, yes. I can get 1.5 Mb (bytes, not bits) through a
synchronous back-to-back user-ppp connection on my laptop (PII366)
with compression disabled.
Also, I'd argue that on an SMP box, user-land MP ppp will beat the
socks off any kernel implementation - at least for the forseeable
(disclaimer: I know nothing about NetBSD SMP mutexes !!). Especially
when you introduce compression - usually better done in userland.
