This sounds to me like an accurate list of what we need to do for
network performance in the next few months.  This is the main priority
for Canonical Bazaar hackers, as well as generally keeping things
moving with user support, bug fixes, monthly releases and so on.

There are some other things that could improve the experience for
networking, but they are not so high as these, so I don't want to add
them to this list.  But still, someone might like to work on them:
better logging and hooks in the smart server, easier setup within
Apache, a system for testing interoperation between old and new
clients and servers.
