Hi Andy!

Sorry to trouble you. The new traffic queuing stuff in 2.1 is probably the
most "myserious" new feature to me. Is there anywhere with details of
functionality provided?

Can the new stuff do

a) Prioritize packets of my choice, e.g. place all port 23 traffic at the
head of the transmit queue?

b) Limit all traffic destined to e.g. 123.123.x.x to 100kbytes/sec?
