You can't do bandwidth shaping with iptables alone, you need the tc tools
to do that.  The packets are (can be) tagged with iptables, then the tc
stuff assigns them to queues for the bandwidth management.  It's a pain
to set up initially.  I've been told to look into cbq at
ftp://ftp.equinox.gu.net/pub/linux/cbq/ but I've not done that yet.  It
looks decent, though.

--Danny, who thinks that iptables should have some way to limit bandwidth anyway :)
