[Pkg-exim4-users] Throttle or limit deliveries to smarthost?

Shaping might work, but this host does a lot of other LAN traffic over
the same eth0 that exim uses for smtp ... so I would have to shape for
smtp only.

What I was really hoping for was an exim4-specific option that says:

Do not launch/spawn more than x queue processes at once.
Do not send more than y bytes or z messages per second to smart_host

I only use a single smart_host for outside deliveries, and I want to
prevent flooding of my internet connection or smarthost when I send
mail to a distribution list.
