The limits 'who' clause should be extended to allow control by ip address.

Pierangelo Masarati said 
"Your problem sounds general enough to deserve an extension of the limits
"who" clause semantics (I don't see it quite high-priority, though).  In
any case, the modification should be trivial enough.  I suggest you file
an ITS for a feature request."
