Ok cool  I have 100meg Ethernet in my house and at work.  I can get
3-4megs from my desktop all the time.  I think that the streams should
take less than that

Ill play with it and let you know how it goes

per backend

So, each backend can use a local filesystem for storage.  However, IMHO,

if your upstream bandwidth isn't great enough to support real-time 
playback, watching will be a challenge.
