It's not too hard actually. Random early drop should be
enough for incoming packets, just artificially restrict
the bandwidth to something like 90% of your maximum
download bandwidth and drop packets that come in too
This will cause tcp to slow down to the speed limit you've
chosen and the ISP queue will never fill up.
