Unburstable shaping



I have read lots of helpful pf.conf examples that seem to do reasonably
complex queueing and that's fine but I am sure there is a simple way to
do what I want.
No Google lead pointed at someone doing just the task described below.
I did STFA here too
In order to demonstrate how slow a webpage looks to a dial-up user
(when the browser is behind my pf firewall and there is a 1536/256Kb/s
ADSL line to the world) I'd like to be able to reload the pf ruleset
with pf.slow which would limit inbound bandwidth by queueing on the
internal interface so that e.g. 192.168.1.200 suddenly was restricted
to 33 Kb/s and no other LAN host was affected and .200 could not get
any more even if all the others were idle.
Doable? Hint?
Is RED required?
 ATM I'm a bit confused about the rich plethora of options in pf's
queueing.
