i begin to suspect folk don't get it.  so i'll try once more.

you can turn on [x]red.  it will make a better choice of which packets
to drop.  but packets will still be dropped [0].

you can increase buffers blah blah blah.  but twenty tomatoes will still
not fit in a fifteen tomato can.



[0] - corollary: qos mechanisims decide which packets to drop.  but isps
      are paid not to drop any packets.
