I haven't tried linux packet scheduling yet, but my guess is that, since
the scheduler can only control transmit queues, interactive sessions'
performance while doing FTP transfers over serial links will not be much
improved. Am I right?

Unless, of course, the other side is Linux too, which happens more and
more often to me. ;)
