What conceivable trade-offs could you have to make to get acceptable
performance out of symmetric crypto encrypted+authenticated tunnel?
All ciphers you should be using are like 50MB/sec on a 1Ghz machine!!

There's fairly detailed performance data for Linux FreeS/WAN IPsec
http://www.freeswan.org/freeswan_trees/freeswan-2.02/doc/performance.html

It's around 50 M bit/second on a GHz machine with 3DES. You can
roughly double that with AES.
