As you point out, that level of granularity isn't available with general
purpose traffic shaping tools.

You may want to look at the Zeus server to understand the features that were
product-worthy as one example. It appears that they've only implemented this
at the virtual server level.

As you're probably aware, thttpd also provides flexible bandwidth

Linux, and I am aware of various kernel-level controls for traffic 
shaping, etc, however if you can tell me how to enforce different 
bandwidth limits for different name-based vhosts, different directories, 
etc, then I'm all ears, but I suspect I can also give you pretty good 
reasons why even if such decisions could somehow be done at the OS 
level, they really shouldn't be.
