A non-exit relay should be packaging very few cells ; if it's not a
directory cache, what it packages will be more or less entirely
directory requests, which are pretty short. I wouldn't be too worried,
unless you happen to be a directory cache, in which case we should
look into some of the ideas we had for improving cell packaging.

This one, I'm not so sure about. Is this value typical for folks?
