hrm, qos doesn't necessarily mean longer RTT, it means preference in
(tight/busy/hot) paths, right? So... if VNSL's network along your path is
oc-48 with only 1mbps of traffic on it and you are taking only 1mbps more
... probably there isn't any change, yes? If it's a 1mbps path and you are
taking 1mbps then... other folks get starved out and potentially get
longer RTT.
