Hi all,

I noticed that s3cmd was swamping my upload bandwidth so I've hacked together a simple rate limit function based loosely on the mechanism in wget. It probably duplicates the functionality of the progress meter a little bit and could be tidied up, but it seems to work pretty well.

It approaches the rate limit but remains a little low for some reason. I haven't compared the results with and without -progress as I only just saw christical's thread about how this option affected speeds.

Cheers,
Joel
