Original design for mod_throttle/1.0 goes to Mark Lovell <email@example.com>.
Elements of the mutex & shared memory code, as of mod_throttle/3.0, originally
derived from the Apache Web Server source code.
Thank You to Lu Vo <LVo@SUPERB.NET> for providing a Solaris POSIX
compliant machine to test on; to Travis Doherty <firstname.lastname@example.org>
for a FreeBSD machine for testing and several suggestions; to David M. Shirley

Description : Bandwidth & Request Throttling
This Apache module is intended to reduce the load on your server & bandwidth
generated by popular virtual hosts, directories, locations, or users according
to supported polices (see below) that decide when to delay or refuse requests.
Also mod_throttle can track and throttle incoming connections by IP address or
by authenticated remote user.
Every request now passes through four levels of throttling, which are: by
client's IP address (ThrottleClientIP), by authenticated remote user name
(ThrottleRemoteUser), by local user ID (ThrottleUser), and by directory,
location, virtual host, or server (ThrottlePolicy).
