Just wanted to chime in here with the suggestion to use a program called
'buffer' which does just this - limits the amount of data per second
that will be passed unchanged from its stdin to stdout :)

It's in Debian as package name 'buffer' and you'll be able to download 
the unpatched source code from http://packages.debian.org/buffer

Cheers,
Gavin.
