Setting emergency moderation on those lists should do what you want,
although you'll have to manually approve the posts that arrived while
emergency was in effect.

What patch is that? Are you referring to the throttling patch linked
from the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/j4A9>? That should work to slow
mail delivery during peak times, but the drawback with that is it will
still deliver posts in the order they arrived, i.e., your high priority
lists won't have priority, but it should be better than just stopping
