If you want improvement in interactive traffic, focus SOLELY
on packet len.  The RIGHT way to do it is to split
where it minimizes the stddev in packet length.  The
easy way is to pick a number between 256 and 512 --
say 384?

queue 1 iplen 0-383
queue 2 iplen 383-1536

and give queue 1 a weight of 100 and queue 2 a weight of 10
