[squid-users] How to limit upload bandwidth in squid proxy?

I read the article you pointed to, but it isn't applicable. I need to be
able to limit upload bandwidth PER USER just like squid does for download
bandwidth, per user.
QUOTE >> I don’t really know if squid supports this or not, but I can’t
imagine why it would need to, with traffic control built into the linux
kernel in a number of ways.
Somebody saw fit to put download bandwidth limiting into squid, so it makes
sense to support upload bandwidth limiting as well.
I am already using ncsa_auth to manage squid users. I need a solution that
doesn't involve using a second authentication just to limit upload
bandwidth per user.
