i believe pf is the most modern and cleanest/easiest syntax to use. it
is actively developed and lots of people use it. You can set up priority
on bandwidth in pf as well, so it should meet all your requirements nicely.

pf will also do the bandwidth management you want. I've used ipfw,
ipf, iptables, and pf; pf is by far the most powerful and easy to use.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
