Only up to "TCP_RECEIVE_WINDOW + 16KB + TCP_SEND_WINDOW". Squid then
slows down to the client speed. If you are using delay pools then the
equation may be limited to TCP_RECEIVE_WINDOW, but I am not sure.

If the client aborts the connection and quick_abort does not abort the
server connection then any remaining data is fetched at full speed by
Squid, and this is regardless of any delay pools.
