I do bandwidth shaping using tc directly.  You might want to read the Linux 
Advanced Routing and Traffic Control HOWTO.  I also use and recommend 
using iptables directly for your firewall and ip for any special routing 

I've also fiddled with existing Shorewall installations, and it seems quite 
usable, although I still prefer the more direct, low-level interfaces.  

tc and ip are part of the iproute package.
iptables is its own package.
