basicly yes. there are multiple ways. plain traffic shaping by local 
interface name, by local mac, by local ip/net
and in addition there is shaping by port based or dpi based packet 
detection and since each instance of cake doesnt know of any other
use of cake qdiscs its getting complicated. but we just started with 
working on it. i'm sure i find a solution for it
