In one case where an attack was under way but I didn't have access to
the firewall, I added something like:

Order Deny,Allow
# offending requests coming from this class C
Deny from 192.168.123
Allow from all

to the docroot's .htaccess file.  Not as effective as dropping the
packets at the border, obviously, but in this case the attacker wasn't
very bright/determined.
