	Hi there!

	as already stated...i'm using the 306 proxy and its running fine...
	also it consumes nearly no cpu clients report EVERY block
to the proxy
	(for smoother stats *g*) and there are up to 25 clients that report
to this proxy...most of them quite fast...
	the proxy takes less than 1% of cpu time...WITH dupechecking on a
P-II/400-128mb running WinNT-Sp4.
	so i cant complain anything about this proxy version!

	Question to Ivo:
	I have to tunnel my blocks through a http-proxy...this works very
well...but why the heck are the clients soo lame in this issue??
	(Maybe u should talk to the clients programmers and "advise" them
how to write really fast network code!)
