Oh my. I guess I was hungry... or maybe it's the heat... or maybe I'm
just damn stupid.

+   <div class=indentedbox>
+	Sets how long the internal data queue can be. If the queue length is over
+	this value, IceS will either shut down or flush its queue (drop the data in
+	the queue), and continue. In simpler words, it allows you to control how much
+	data IceS will keep in buffer before deciding it can't send data fast enough
+	to the server.
