Well, I'm no expert and I don't understand what is layered driver. Does 
such driver send
packets to shaping queues before echoing them ? If so, how would one 
implement it ?

Hostap driver echoes packets by default, but they are not seen by 
shaping queues.
That is the problem. It would be very helpfull to shape interstation 
traffic on wireless
segments.

Thanks,
Karel
