[SR-Users] Rate limiting

the pipelimit aims to be more dynamic, while dropping the queues
concepts of ratelimit, given those can be done with IF conditions inside

In ratelimit, the pipes are defined as parameters, with some limits in
the number of pipes as well as constrained to integer ids for pipes.

Pipelimit can load the definitions of pipes from database, making it
easier to provision via some gui. It doesn't store back anything, given
that even few seconds of shutdown will invalidate the pipes counters.
Moreover, the pipes can be created on the fly, they don't have to be
defined in advance via db or parameters. You can load the limit and
algorithm from a user profile and then just use them as parameter with
the username as pipe id parameter and you get a new pipe created at that
moment if there is none with same id.
