Default [REQ] 3G Data Bandwidth Limiter

I'm looking for something to set a Kb/s or Mb/s bandwidth limit on my HTC Desire... Similar to how NetLimiter works for Windows. There are tons of apps out there that track and/or limit the total amount of data transferred, but I haven't found any that can restrict the actual data transfer speed.

It doesn't have to be too fancy or complicated; all it needs is an option to set a system-wide bandwidth limit (like 20Kb/s for example) and it would be nice to have a way to toggle it on/off (preferably by widget or ongoing notification).

If nothing like this exists currently and somebody manages to make an app to fill to void, I'd say a donation is definitely in order.

So, does anybody know of an app that would do this? Or would someone be willing/able to write one...? I don't know nearly enough about Java to do it myself.

Thanks lufc, and my apologies.. I wasn't sure where to post this, but I saw a couple other posts of a similar type in that forum, so I thought it was the right place.
