Thanks for all the kind words (*blush*), I'm glad my little "manual"
is not only of practical use, but also a source of laughs :))

This is absolutely right, I am of course talking about the bandwidth
in either direction. I will make sure to be more clear about this!
(If you have a "nice" ISP, like mine, you should be able to set your
pipe to 232Kbit/s, for a 256Kbit/s line! But I guess this can vary a
lot, and 220Kbit/s is a good conservative value, especially if you
haven't done extensive speed testing.)

This link will certainly be placed in the links section!
I can see from this "official documentation" that some further
corrections will be in order (not that I expected otherwise!)
I will (hopefully soon) do a complete rewrite of the shaper manual,
for the m0n0wall documentation project. So don't hesitate to come
forward with those comments, corrections and suggestions...
