Set the shaper at 50% of contracted rate and measure the bufferbloat
(depending on the expertise of the user either via flent or the dslreports
speedtest); if bufferbloat acceptable set shaper higher (by 50% of the
remaining difference to 100% contracted rate) or if unaceptable lower.
Really just a binary search for the acceptable limits. Now this should be
done individually for each shaper direction. The final proof of the pudding
is to see how this shaper copes with a bi-directional saturating load (like
flent's rrul).

​Given that the target audience is VCR-owning home users could this be
reduced to a scripts?  Then perhaps hardware vendors could then expose it
in​ their GUI.
