All people aggreed that this is the correct formula to use in order to
count the percentage of collisions. Some of them gave hints about what this
percentage must be in order to have a healthy network: it semms that any
number < 5% is a good one.

A lot of thanks to: (Chris Perry) (Martin Kelly) (Russ Poffenberger) (Dan Gosse) (Keith Stone) (Mike Raffety)
