There is already an option to limit the bandwidth -- see --bwlimit.  By
lurking on this list, I've learned that it's not exactly a hard limit
but a limit on the average transfer rate -- my understanding is that
works something like: when the current average bandwidth exceeds the
limit, subsequent "packets" are delayed to reduce the average bandwidth

Will this accomplish what you need or are you looking for something

hope this helps,
