[RC5] LIFO? Is this true?

     Probably.  buff-* files used by pproxies don't have to permit 
     multiple-process sharing.  FIFO on pproxies could be as easy as 
     making new *files* on every fetch and emptying one file before 
     starting on the next.

Besides, from what I understand, FIFO buffering code has already been 
written for the personal proxies anyway. Would it really be that much 
trouble to re-use that code for the clients? 
     
I would guess that at least 95% of all unreturned blocks are due to LIFO 
buffering by clients running in lurk mode; thus LIFO vs. FIFO is everything 
but trivial.
