I've tested 17 MiB/s with cptime.c32 with VMware Server 2.0.2 and lighttpd
on the same machine. I still need to find some time for testing some other
hardware platforms (Dell OptiPlex 755 and newer with Intel NICs).

SWEET! Someone uses rosh! This inspires me to pick it back up again
(hopefully shortly) seeing as I think I just finished up work on pxechn.c32.

I believe more testing.
