1. http://www.chronox.de/ Uses kernel features

2. http://snad.ncsl.nist.gov/itg/nistnet/ This can be run on a separate box, or on and "end-node" and setup to restrict traffic. It's intended to test the impact of network restrictions and degradations; but should work to emulate a 200kbps link.

3. Use Python's SocketServer.Forking{TCP,UDP}Server modules and insert a delay between in/out (semi-kidding... hopefully, you didn't need to read this far... :^)
