Perhaps I'm missing something, but most bittorrent clients make it 
rather easy to define/limit the speed of both the upstream and 
downstream data rate.  So it will only consume as much bandwidth as you 
allow it.  I'm not certain what you can do about controlling the number 
of network connections or even if that would be considered any real 
burden on modern hardware if you've got a sensible upstream bitrate set.
