#1 Test comms latency

core (7)
Alex Brooks

Using a simple (example) server and client, send a heap of objects and measure the average latency.

This would be easiest for synchronous calls (query), but there's surely a way to do it for asynch too.

Variables to vary:

- comms pattern
- connection type (intra-host, inter-host, wired, wireless)
- object size (type?)

Should make a note of processor load while doing htis too.

    Should also provide a standard against which to evaluate whether a given latenxy is 'fast' or 'slow', eg:

    - round-trip latency of ping (trivial to implement)
    - crudg (harder to implement)
    - simple socket (harder to implement again)
    - Player (hard to implement, given Player's fixed update rate)

    Definately don't need to test all of these, perhaps ping is enough.
