The --bwlimit option is understood when starting the daemon, but the value
isn't shared with the client, so any limiting that the client side would
normally be in charge of won't happen.  If you're wanting to force --bwlimit to
a particular value, your only option is probably to write a pre-xfer exec
script that scans the args and dies with an error if bwlimit isn't right.

What we need to do for the future is make the daemon side send any in-effect
bwlimit to the client in the protocol at startup.
