I'll second what Steve Vance said about making sure the
server -> proxy transfers are compressed.

p4p queries the server on every request that doesn't specify
a particular file revision, to find out which version to serve.
For small files this can be slower than transferring the files
directly.  The minimum size of files to cache is tunable on
2005.2 and later p4p, using  the -e flag.
