This may look like I am complaining about encryption sinking the performance,
in fact not at all. I strongly prefer having the traffic encrypted
and appreciate the fact that I do not have to choose between different
protection modes.
That would just create extra complexity and a place for making errors.

Had we needed even better fetch performance here, we would set up several
replicating servers. The reading performance on the clients is normally
not bound by the network transfer speed, as soon as the clients use
the cached data more than once.
