Hi folks,

Can people try these out and give me feedback?

If you run a Tor server and also use it as a client, these options are
for you. Just replace your current BandwidthRate and BandwidthBurst
settings in torrc with RelayBandwidthRate and RelayBandwidthBurst, and
Tor should magically start working better for you -- it will rate limit
traffic from other people but not limit your own traffic.
