 I ended up saying keep 60 blocks in the buffer. Watching the logs
it some times nearly runs out, but the 20 clients involved dont all
hit at the same time, so it works mostly.
 Some suggested over a 1000.

 Sounds like the value should be much much larger than the default.

 It would have helped me if the readme had mentioned that clients would
get an error and would not work properly if the proxy ran out of blocks
on them.
 Maybe the readme file should mention that for multiple hosts talking to
the proxy that several 100 or even over a 1000 blocks in the buffer is
more appropiate.
