This really doesn't answer your question, but I wanted to mention that I
use CBQ on Redhat for QoS and it does a great job at limiting bandwidth
to exactly what it's set to. I believe it's included with Debian as
well. I use it on several servers to limit saturation.

I think I tried the --bwlimit option a while back and it doesn't seem to
work to well if you have many small files.
