[thelist] Per socket bandwidth throttling

On a Windows 2003 server, does anybody know of a way to throttle how much
bandwidth can be allocated to a single socket connection?  I'm not
necessarily talking about JUST IIS requests, but potentially any web service
on the machine.  And, by "single socket" I'm referring to a single client
connected to the machine.  For example, I may want to limit the bandwidth to
10kbps for each client who connects to my box via port 80, except perhaps
googlebot, who is allowed only 5kbps.

Is there an appliance that can stand in-front of my box or a NIC software
driver that can do this?  Would anybody be interested in writing such a
driver if it doesn't exist?
