The results, for anyone interested, can be found here

Long story short, there doesn't seem to be any notable difference 
between the two anymore. I still have a few more test combinations to 
run (<.5ms rtts and against cygwin) so the conclusions might change but, 
at this point, I'm no longer seeing any sort of performance hit (as a 
measure of throughput) for hpnssh in local area networks.

Raw data, test script, and stats script available for those interested.
