[Ndn-interest] Multi-path retrieval performance

Including whether these are real or virtual machines and whether the underlying physical transports are independent.
Also need to consider the interest lifetimes -- increase the pipeline too much and the interests can time out before they're responded to, requiring retransmits.

I ran the same kind of testing with a number of virtual machines on Amazon, and on some fairly beefy 10 Gb/s connected systems, testing the interest forwarding strategies when we first implemented them in ccnx 0.8.x; it's more sensitive to the conditions than you might hope, but as you are suggesting, if you have a complete top-to-bottom understanding of the setup it is possible to explain the performance one sees.
