  Sean's eloquent description of theory and science notwithstanding,
  I'd strongly encourage active network operators to experiment
  empirically with pchar on your internal links.

  Try it; you'll like it; and be blown away.

  The reported available bandwidth from a single, discrete, source,
  is scarily most always accurate, relative to pseudo real time
  exponentially decaying interface util and SNMP if utilization.
