Thanks. It seems to be working well, but it's nice to get a second opinion
from someone who's done this before. No, I don't want to reserve the 64K
when it's not being used. I believe that my setup handles this correctly,
since traffic goes into the full-bandwidth queue by default, and only
certain traffic gets filtered into the 64Kb queues.

Thanks for the tip. The "ALTQ Tips" page seems to suggest using it, but
it's sort of vague:
``set "red" if you use RED dropper (good for TCP).''

That's the sort of information I was looking for. I appreciate it!
