Sorry for my poor expression, I mean the http request-response is
time-consuming for a long fat pipe, even though it's a high bandwidth
connection. It cost at least two round-trip time to get the first packet of
response, right? I know it's difficult to "make sure it's right" and "keep
it fast" at the same time.
