I've already hand adjusted the default TCP window size on my machine and it noticably made quite a big difference my transfer rates from my own tuned servers. From this little bit of evidence I can blazenly extrpolate to suggest that maximum bandwidth consumption is currently limited to some noticable degree by the lack of widely deployed TCP window size tuning. Links that are currently uncongested might suddenly see a sizable amount of extra traffic.
I'm concerned that if Microsoft were to post this as a patch to Windows XP/2003 then we would see the effects of this "all at once", instead of the gradual process of Vista deployment. Anyone agree?
