Hy people;

Traffic shapper is an old module from the linux kernel. The iproute2 features
is better than shaper module. You could use the cbq.init script to control
iproute features.

 * BUGS:
 * Downing the interface under the shaper before the shaper
 * will render your machine defunct. Don't for now shape over
 * PPP or SLIP therefore!
