  Has anyone done any recent studies of the efficiency of the various
common information sharing protocols (HTTP, Gopher, WAIS, etc)?  I'd
like to know how each compares to the others and also where the majority
of the bandwidth is being consumed (transferring images, I assume).
  Is anyone planning on doing such stuides?  Does anyone have any suggestions
and/or experience regarding measurement techniques?
