Doesn't it already? (I haven't tried Varnish yet, but that would be
one of the Must Have features). I am at the Web Builder conference
and I'm just told a bunch of people in my talk to use Varnish for
this in 2007. :^) (The slides are at http://develooper.com/talks/ )
If you don't need caching, then perlbal has some of the same
properties as Varnish and it does do the "slow feeding to clients"
thing. (And Keep-Alive connections in both directions).
