Wow, thanks you two.  That was easy, and it seems to help immensely.
(For my "Pro Residential" DSL, setting it to 3072 KBps down, 384 KBps up
seemed to do the trick.)

Uploading a 2600KB file via scp.  Before:

  scp reported upload speed avg of 55.3KB/s, total time of 00:47

  --- yahoo.com ping statistics ---
  11 packets transmitted, 10 received, 9% packet loss, time 16513ms
  rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 224.032/994.964/1176.093/285.989 ms, pipe 2


  scp: 45.6KB/s   00:57

  --- yahoo.com ping statistics ---
  10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 9016ms
  rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 20.033/57.038/115.168/29.315 ms
