Assuming that you're using Linux somewhere in the mix, its ability to put 
different network traffic into different pools for purposes of rate 
management is (1) admittedly poorly documented, but (2) quite potent.  
You could put the rsync traffic into a low priority queue, where it gets 
all the bandwidth not being used by something else.  Or you could set a 
minimum, so that the rsync cannot be completely starved out.
