One should note that any utilization up to 59.8% is, on average,
indistinguishable from an empty line. 70% = 1.6x delay, 80% = 3.2x, 90% =
8.1x, and 95% = 18.05x. Of course, once you figure in finite buffering,
anything past 59.8% is likely to be dropping packets.
ObMath: Plot r^2/(1-r). Where the derivative exceeds one (r~0.598), delay
increases faster than traffic rate. Assumes random arrival times.
