Linux Tor node prioritization script

So I've posted this script before, but that was over a year ago,
probably should re-announce it.

I've created a Linux 'tc'-based tor prioritization script, ideal for
running Tor nodes on Linux machines that have multiple IPs with
non-Tor traffic on them that you would like to take priority over Tor

Using this script, it is possible to set a minimum guaranteed
bandwidth for your Tor node, and to allow it to take up all unused
bandwidth up to another maximum value you specify. I use it on a few
different types of links, and it is very nice. You can allow Tor to
take up essentially an entire link, but still have that link usable
for ssh, web, etc. I don't even feel the impact of Tor traffic on
nodes that use this script.

It is in svn at http://tor.eff.org/svn/trunk/contrib/linux-tor-prio.sh
and soon to be in the various source tarballs.
