David,

I'm running a few majordomo lists on a DSL link, and they're VERY fast...
I haven't had any problems with messages coming in out of order, either.
So, I think you'll find that this solves the problems.

Of course, my lists only have 10-15 people on them... the volume of mail
doesn't even compare to what you're doing...  but I still think we'll see
a dramatic improvement. :)

I can't wait! :)
