(FWD) Server requirements?

That sounds mighty cool.  Maybe create some sort of ranking system so that
slower users get targeted towards servers in the same sort of class, whereas
the higher speed users get bumped into a higher class?
A friend and I worked on a very similar system to Tor, and the idea of tiers
was kicked around quite a bit.

[Right now all the servers claim to be on at least 1mbit
connections. We're working on algorithms to make more use of the fast
nodes, and less use of the slow nodes. -RD]

I've been using Tor for a few days now, and am wondering about the
dedicated server requirements.  When I download via the proxy, sometime
I'll get half-decent speeds, and sometimes it will crawl along.  I
understand this has to do with one of the connections that I'm being
bounced through.  Are there any connection requirements that are
enforced to run a server?  For example, the server must sit on a minimum
5mbit connection, or something similar.  Am I just being greedy because
I'm used to higher speeds, or should I just deal with the fact that I'm
being bounced through somebody's 960/128k DSL connection?
