You can specify any limit expressed in kilobytes per second.  See the
description of --bwlimit in the man page for a bit more information.

It is beyond me why a select() call immediately after sending the
final partial chunk of a file tends to spuriously time out, while a
select() call immediately after sending a full chunk of the middle of
a file (which is larger) tends to work correctly.
