It can be sometimes very irritating, but there is a solution (not too
elegant one, though). You can always chain-link proxies. This means that
you run two proxies on one machine (on different ports !). You set the
'lower' proxy (the one that your clients talk to) to a real high number
for incoming blocks, so the 'upper' proxy is always drained. This way,
the upper proxy has empty in-buffers and you can always fill it up. Of
course you do not have to run both proxies all the time, the upper one
can be started when exchange is needed, so no resorces are wasted.
