In my testing tunneling really only makes a big difference if you've got 10G
links, and even then it'll hit about 70% of the line rate for an unencrypted
tunnel (with libvirtd running at ~70% cpu util).

Something like that seems reasonable.  It'd be nice if we didn't need an
explicit username config option.
