timed bandwidth throttle mechanism (speed limit)

With limited bandwidth being shared Filezilla can be a bit of a data hog.
Can I suggest a kb/sec download limit maximum transfer rate. This is a similar mechanism that some bit torrent clients have (Vuze)
I would also imagine an improvement over this feature that would allow a timetable of transfer rates. This would for example allow an increase in transfer rates after office hours, or overnight when the network is idle.
An example would be below:
Start End Download Bandwidth Upload Bandwidth 0830 - 1730 10k bytes per sec 5k bytes per sec 1731 - 2000 50k bytes per sec 20k bytes per sec 2001 - 0700 unlimited unlimited 0701 - 0829 50k bytes per sec 20k bytes per sec
I think this would a very good feature in shared network environments and for unattended operation of backups/large complex transfers.
I would suggest having separate upload and download limits for people with asymmetrical bandwidth connectivity.
