... or be patient and wait a week or so for me to release the magic
shaper for m0n0.  While not identical (diffs between Linux and BSD), it
was inspired by wondershaper.  If you know what your upstream and
downstream bandwidth is, it will do the rest for you.  I have a working
beta, but I'm waiting on some other patches to shaper.inc to make it
into the mainstream.  Once that's done, magic shaper goes to Manuel for
his evaluation.
  What does it do?  It sets up a series of pipes/queues/rules to put
high priority on interactive apps such as telnet,ssh, etc; a very low
priority on p2p apps (optional), and everything else (web,ftp,email)
falls in between.
