There is no algorithm for the general situation, but there is a very good approximation for the endpoints, right? Prioritize your outgoing packets, limit your download rate to a little less than the available bandwidth for your incoming packets. That is what Gettys calls "dropping packets", which should be a good thing and not too hard to do in the OS.
