fetch doesn't saturate the connection - it issues a command, waits for a
response, issues a command and so on.  This means that in between
getting a response and the remote server processing the command the
downlink is pretty much idle.  Preloading commands can eliminate a lot
of this delay.

[This hasn't been implemented while I wasn't looking has, it?]
