[Bloat] fixing netem to be more useful

On of my big issues with netem (a network emulator for linux that lets
you do delay, loss, etc) is that there is no way to setup multiple RTT
emulations without having a separate maximum number of packets limit
for each, which can really skew the results. I would like to see a
netem that had a multi-queue implementation with a shared limit, among
other things.

Is there anyone working on making netem better? is there someone
willing to work on it that someone could fund?

This comment arose from the code facebook for their shaper implementation here:
