IMQ, Traffic Shaping across multiple interfaces.

Anyone used/using the IMQ device for traffic control?  I'm using Debian testing 
and it looks like it's the only way to share/borrow bandwidth across multiple 
outgoing interfaces.

I can't find the patches for iptables 1.2.7a, but I imagine that since I'll 
have to compile it myself I might as well use 1.2.8 but I can't find the 
patches for that either.  From what I've read, the 2.4.19 kernel patches will 
work with 2.4.20.

What I've got is one internet link feeding down into as many as 8 outgoing 
ethernet interfaces, 7 of them to LANs with private IP's, and 1 with public 
ip's (as per the proxy-arp firewall information posted here earlier this 
week).  I need to give each of the 7 inside networks and each public IP on the 
last interface a ceiling, but I want to borrow from all of them for one 
particular public IP.

Is there any other way to do this?  It seems with the IMQ device and a few htb 
classes this would be pretty easy, but I really hate going outside the 
packaging system if I don't have too.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
