Hello Doug, everybody,

Just a quick question: I think if we could shave off 10-20% of the 
bandwidth with some new technique, we'd all go for it.

So why are we okay with 10-20% more processing costs for everybody, but 
not with 10-20% more bandwidth? What's different between processing 
costs and bandwidth?

Regards,   Martin.
