That would have to be something that the server would allow, which as far as
I know a standard subversion server would not handle. I also don't know how
subversion handles multiple concurrent commits. However, a better suggestion
may be an option to turn on/off a bandwidth limitation from that dialog.
That would be something that would be client-side only and could be quite
useful. See "wget --limit-rate" for an example of what I mean.
