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).
