Not at all - but, now you have got me curious, I just went to
a completely different system (four core opteron box, no ecnryption,
four 15k SCSI drives and a zpool of 2 mirrored pairs), and that
also gave me about 25 meg/second!
I am using the wildly unscientific "how long to copy a file"
method to benchmark here, with the file residing on a different
drive, which can provided it at 80 meg/second.

I have no idea, and now I think I need to look into it! certainly
I should be getting better than 25 meg/sec out of the 15K SCSI's.
