...sure an very offtopic answer, but perhaps interesting.
I've heard this week that commercial firewall Check Point FW-1 Next
Generation Flood Gate will (already or soon) support QoS based on
User Authentication combined with VPN.
The only Linux related things:
* you can install the firewall (even flood gate) on Linux systems
using kernel 2.4.x
* a commandline VPN client will be availabe Q2 or so (but don't if
here the QoS is supported.
