I an wondering if there is anyway to incorporate traffic shaping into my
firewall rules? I was reading over traffic shaping howto, and there was
changes via iptables. So I wonder if I can just create some objects that
would make the traffic shaping iptables changes?

pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently
and die gallantly.

IIRC Vadim is on vacation so I will try to answer this. :-)
AFAIK there is no support built into fwbuilder for traffic shaping. It has
been requested many times and I think it is on the list for a future version.
In the mean time the recommendation has been to use the prolog/epilog features
of fwbuilder to impliment traffic shaping. It is also on my todo list but so
far I have not had the time to mess with it.
Hope this helps,
