It just does... TBF as far as I understand is a simple rate
limiting tool for your network link. I implemented the child
qdisc for TBF so you can change default fifo queue in it to
SFQ or PRIO. It supposed to be very lightweight. If you need
something more complex/fancy then you probably want HTB or CBF.
It's all just my opinion though.
