It would be really interesting if you could expand the range of 32 to 64
byte packets to display in one byte increments.  Then we could
try to guess:

o	How many packets are nothing but TCP and IP headers?

o	How many packets appear to be TCP/IP headers with one byte of
	data?

o	How many of these packets, with some sort of header compression
	scheme, could fit in one ATM cell?

o	Etc., etc.
