There's a bandwidth "shaper" that may be built as a kernel module.  It
appears to do bandwidth limiting on the outgoing side only and is
applied to an interface rather than a process.  I've never used it, and
it doesn't sound exactly like what you want.  

	See <kernel>/Documentation/networking/shaper.txt

Also, see the "Adv Routing-HOWTO" which might provide more insight into
such things...
