 Subject:  Traffic shaper: bits -> bytes
 Date:  Mon, 1 Nov 2004 11:58:42 -0800
Been experimenting with m0n0's traffic shaper and noticed it seems to
consider a byte to be slightly more than eight bits (more like 8.3-8.5
bits).  Is there a reason for this?  How exactly does the traffic
shaper convert bits to bytes and vise-versa?
