Maybe using queues for prioritising empty ACKs would already
be good enough: http://www.benzedrine.cx/ackpri.html

It's PF and ALTQ specific, but the same can be done with other
packet filters.

Additionally you could give all Tor traffic a lower priority,
I think it would be a better solution than to set a hard bandwidth
limit in Tor, which most of the time would limit your server more
than necessary.
