It was maybe because I was in a bad mood ;/ In common I am not

It is that with the keyword "tweaking" all bells go on at me. It comes
from Windows[tm] area where it seems usual to feel kind of cool/leet if
being able to change default parameters in the registry, whether that
really changes anything to better or worse and whether to understand
what is changed or not. I already had enough discussions with such
"tweakers", already in former ISDN times when they intended to get more
than the usual 7,5 up to 8 KB/sec from their line.
Maybe my one word reply was harsh and inequitable in a way too. But the
question woke up all experience. At least if someone can not report any
problems or complaints about bad speed, that indicates to me no real
need for any change.
