Provide ability to "manage" bandwidth throttling on a policy basis

We sometimes have the need to disable bandwidth throttling for a particular deployment for emergencies and such.  It would be cool to have the ability to check a box in a policy, which could provide a mechanism that disabled bandwidth throttling to clients while they download the specific source, and then re-enables it when complete.

Just as a work around you could send a task to modify the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Altiris\Communications\"Enable Bandwidth Control" and set the value to "0" at the start of your deployment and another task to flip that back to "1" when you're done.
