It is possible to shape incoming traffic for tcp streams. Just drop any
packets that would cause the required bandwidth to be exceeded. TCP is
designed to assume packet loss means a saturated link, and backoff. While
it is not possible to get the bandwidth exact it is good enough to be
usefull.

When it comes to bittorrent I tend to find the problem is the upstream
bandwidth use, and that is much more controlable :)
