The client could test various things (CPU speed, latency, bandwidth) and
recommend settings to the user.  The user could also answer questions
regarding the constancy of their connection.  This would help people set
their buffer size correctly for DES, for instance.  A checkbox that would
allow the user to submit that sort of information for statistical analysis
would be nice too.
