OK, this basically does the same but with protocol all.

I don’t need ready-made scripts, I need building blocks
and some amount of understanding.

This is still open… nothing? No inter-module communication possible?

Ideally, I’d configure one of the qdiscs to know the handle and device¹
of another, and then its .change op would call the .change op (or a
special function) from the other, but I lack sufficient Linux kernel
experience (even locking for SMP is something I always fear to miss).

① it really would help if just the handle is enough; they are practically
  global (in my setup) anyway because they determine the debugfs filename

Alternatively, the ability to run multiple tc commands without having to
do multiple fork/exec of the binary would help. Maybe even a “continuous”
mode, in which the binary would REPL commands from stdin, running them as
they’re read…

Thanks in advance,
