Err, I should retract this; it looks like the relevant block size is
determined by Globals.conn_bufsize (.blocksize is for reading a file
from disk in blocks) which defaults to 4096 bytes, or only about 20
files at a time.

    Hmm, maybe the default of this should be higher, and ssh should by
default be run with the -C switch.  All the machines I have access to
are at Stanford and I generally get 1-2ms ping times.  If anyone wants
to try messing around with these options and seeing if they make a
difference, I'd be interested in the results.
