Btw, I recently reported 900kb/s over the wire for the Indy.  That was
measured using ftping huge files.  Most people prefer the numbers from
ttcp which where around 1038kb/s for an R5000 Indy.

I actually did complete the port of 2.0.30 as part of a commercial
project.  Not to the Indy, but that wouldn't be too difficult.  A certain
well known (Hi :-) personality from the Linux comunity is now continuing
that work.
