I really mean 100 GB.  With IPv6 even.

Of course, it's split down so much that no one user could come close to that 
even if we had 100 machines with gigabit interfaces, so it's rather silly.

Perhaps this is somehing I can do while on a plane, and submit diffs.

Better documentation is always good, but no matter how awesome the words are, 
if one cannot find them, they are worthless.  :)

I'll make a list of items.  Ideally, each name should be documented somewhere 
obvious, with pointers around to the more detailed parts.  I'll see what I 
can come up with in my non-copious spare time.
