I think this is where you ought to be using better networking
technologies to accomplish this - Virtual Circuit approaches using
either Frame Relay or doing something similar with ATM. You could then
set aside a fixed bandwidth for Squid, that it can't use more; and also
allow people to get better performance for web transactions by using
your proxy (because it has that dedicated bandwidth).

Obviously some code modification would be cheaper, but unlike throttling
at the web server (as thttpd implements) when you're just the reader the
other end can send things at a rate only controllable per individual
incoming TCP connection.
