1.   Use DHCP to assign him/her the same IP address every time (then
      dump his lease so it reassigns)
   2. Create (two) pipes within the traffic shaper, one for download and
      one for upload. Make them something generous like 56 K or
      something (hehe)
   3. Make a traffic shaping rule at the very top with his IP that
      points to the (2) new "limited" pipes.
   4. Apply settings and watch him curse his PC for being slow for some
      reason (chuckle from the back with evil laugh).

If he/she is not very technical they might learn a lesson, but if they 
are they might trying assigning a manual IP address that is different 
than their DHCP address to get around this, so hope for the first one.  
Otherwise you'll have to captive portal everyone I think.
