I don't think you will find it very bursty if you set a relatively low 
threshold.  It will hit the threshold and just stay there (at least 
during times of rapid change...like new major or minor releases).  I 
note that when I set my upstream bitrate to 30k/sec, it immediately pegs 
there and stays there.
