Hi Francis,

It is "to the same upstream server"  that I care about.  I would like to
limit the request rate to the same upstream server.

The Scenarios is like:
10 requests at the same time to the same upstream server, the upstream
server should only receive requests at rate 1r/m. Last few requests will be
delayed or rejected. But for these last few requests, some of them can be
served by cache, they should not be delayed/rejected.
