So, ignoring HTTP, the theory is that if you want to transfer a big file
really fast, you should open like ten TCP connections and transfer
tenth-sized chunks of it in parallel?

I really doubt that's any faster, and if it ever is, it's only because
you're being a bad network citizen and grabbing a bigger share of a
congested pipe.
