Looks like a good place to use access lists that choose packets based on
tcp, udp, and port number.  If I could get a 45 Mbps circuit over high-latency
geosatellite, one-way, I could use it for http and "push" traffic.
The requests, outbound stuff, and interactive traffic would fit into a T1 
under the ocean.
