Sean: that would be me.

Let's see: firewall disabled (I know, I know...), ADSL router with NAT
on SUA only, ports opened (Bittorrent-gui says "Running normally" -
otherwise it would say "Firewalled" or something like that). And my
average performance is 2 to 3 Kbps with peak performance being 9 to 10
Kbps on download and upload averaging 8 to 10 with peaks of 15. I don't
know of any other configuration I might tweak. This performance is
consistent with my standard ftp or http performance. So, I see no
advantage in using torrents. That's my point.

Just my 2 cents,
