possible on FreeBSd.

dummynet is used for traffic shaping now, which doesn't support that. 
dummynet wasn't designed to be a traffic shaper, though it can do an
ok job of it (its original purpose was for network testing purposes,
as a delay imitator).  We'll hopefully see altq in m0n0wall before too
long.  It will do all the things you mentioned.
