These "measurements" were done while running safari, x11, xemacs/slime 
etc. And I downloaded the file to the same disk as it was served from.

Running wget on another mac gave even readings around 6MB/s for both 
apache and cl servers, then it's 100bit ethernet limiting the transfer 
speed, I guess.
