I'm reminded of another fact that I made an experimental feature
about process scheduling and flow control by DeleGate in last October.
The original intention of the feature was preventing CPU and bandwidth
from occupied unfairly by a few intensive clients, and it was
implemented based on nice() and sleep(). I suppose that generalizing
these mechanism and controlling it by parameters like sorts of protocols
and users, as in access control, will do somewhat like bandwidth
management with a little extension to the existing mechanism of DeleGate.
