it _can_ if it wants to. :0

seriously, justin ellison's magic shaper rulesets do take advantage of
this window, at a cost of sacrificing about 10-15% of your download
bandwidth. let's assume that your isp gives you 1Mbps download, and you
set the incoming pipe bw to be 900Kbps. thus, as your downloads reach
900Kbps, the receiver will start throttling the sender using the tcp
window mechanism described above.

justin should be releasing his magic shaper soon, me thinks.
