So, to summarize, if I had one queue with a 128 KB/s realtime
specification and all other queues did not have a realtime

KB/s) if the realtime queue was empty (and thus not using the full
upload bandwidth available)?

This applies only when specifying things as percentages, and not in the
case where absolute transfer rates are provided, correct?
