incoming traffic reaches your m0n0wall before it can be shaped. if it's
reached your m0n0wall, it's already put a load on your incoming T1, thus
serving no useful purpose in reality.

however, since you have dual interfaces, you can set outbound traffic
shaping on your wan link and outbound shaping on your lan link. the
outbound on your lan should be equivalent to the inbound on your wan, and
under your control.
