Sounds nice.  Would it work if all the traffic is from the local host
(thin client server) to the other local machines (thin clients)?

Are there other alternatives?  shaperd looks like it might be able to
do the job:

Description: A user-mode traffic shaper for tcp-ip networks
 Shaperd is a user-mode program that can shape traffic passing through
 a Linux box. As it runs as a normal daemon, some kind of packet-forwarding
 mechanism is needed. This can be done with the BSD divert sockets patch
 for Linux 2.2, or with netfilter's built-in libipq under Linux 2.4.
