Very true.  But what we're discussing here is the *specific* case where
eyecandystore's biggest challenge at delivering the experience is an external
challenge, namely that $IP_PROVIDER's service sucks.  It's particularly
galling when $IP_PROVIDER's internal net is actually up to snuff, but they
engage in shakedown tactics to upgrade peering points.
