Traffic Shaping with pf ...

      I have a couple of firewalls running freebsd 5.4 and pf and was 
planning to use ALTQ for traffic shaping. But after doing a bit of 
reading, it would seem that ALTQ only works on traffic passing outbound 
on an interface. Since most of the traffic passing through my firewall 
is http and ftp traffic, the inbound direction is the path being 
saturated. Did I read the ALTQ documentation wrong or is there another 
mechanism available for use with pf that could help me prioritize 
bandwidth usage?

Thanks in advance,
