Interesting.  I'm wondering what your network link is for the second
graph, though, because clearly 23 MB/sec (hpn-ssh with arcfour) is too fast
for 100 Mbps.

If people really want good performance, I tell them to use our version
of kftp, which I added some extensions to allow the user to specify the
send and receive socket buffer size.  Using that, I was able to get 50
MB/sec across an OC-12, which is 622 Mbps (I had a couple of terabytes
to move, so I really wanted the best performance I could get).
