You might want to experiment with the THRESH value in sdl.c
to get the best performance.  I set it to 32 and that works
pretty well for me, but I'm not claiming it's optimal -- I
only tried 16 and 32, and 32 was better.  You can use
any value >= 1.  It controls the size of the blocks of
pixels over which the patch makes send/no-send decisions.
