SpecWeb right now follows the run book very liberally - and there are
certainly shortcuts you could take whilst staying within the run rules. If
you want to I can dig out a list.

Also - hack the conf to do short runs first !

You are going to find plenty of network, kernel and OS bottlenecks. It is
for a good reason that those setups you find on the side are such
massive beasts. If you clients are not on windows - you may want to talk
to Sander Temme - Covalent had to hack them on FreeBSD to get the byte
counts done reliably
