Can you speed up the replication task (Epo 3.6.0)

In EPO 3.6.0, you can specify replication tasks, which incrementally replicate repositories to distributed repositories.
Now I have noticed that with some slow WAN connections, performance is very slow.
What I also noticed is that even though it takes a very long time to replicate everything, the network bandwidth that is being used (% Network usage) on the EPO server is very low (max. 2%, most of the times below 1% though).

Now I was wondering :

* Is there a way to force EPO to use more bandwidth, so that it finishes more quickly ?
* Is there a way to specify the number of repositories it is replicating to simultaneously ?

Also, does anyone know how this mechanism actually works ?
I mean, it looks like it takes 6 or 7 repositories at the same time, and as soon as one of them finishes, it replaces that one with a fresh one to replicate, until all repositories have been completed.
But suppose you have 5 "quick" sites, and 1 slow site among those 6 that are currently replicating.
Is this one slow site causing the rest of the replication to slow down or not ?

The epo server replicates

"number of cpus" x 6

repositories at the same time.
This can be changed via the registry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Site Manager]

Create a DWORD "NumReplicationThreads" and set the number to the concurrent threads you want epo to run.
