I've had the displeasure of having to set up traffic shaping on a couple of occasions and every time I had to read tons of incomplete documentation and outdated documentation.
I realize that there's always the danger of designing something like this to death, but it would be very cool if a proper, userfiendly integration with traffic shaping could be baked in this time around, the gulf between tc and iptables has been a an absolute catastrophe wrt. usability, mindshare and documentation.

I agree on the "designing to death" risk, but this is something that affects the API and because of that needs to be considered from the beginning. I'm about to finish the second-to-last missing part of the API (an API for maintaining sets independently of rules), hooking it up to TC will be the next and probably last bigger part.

Traffic shaping is becoming more important by the month. It's time to let it become
manageable under Linux.

Why is it that I can't simply pipe traffic via a queue from any arbitrary firewall rule?
