There is code in nnrpd.c, perl.c, and article.c that references 
MaxBytesPerSecond which looks, on quick examination, to do part of 
what you're looking for.

What's there works on a per-connection basis, not per-

The existing perl authenticator returns 4 results; it doens't provide 
a value for MaxBytesPerSecond.  I'll mess around with this for a bit 
and see if I can't scrape together whether it works as-is.  It might
