AFAIK Traffic Shaping is the last thing done before packet leaves into 
the wire when applied on physical devices. But it depends on some 
things. You can use for example IMQ. Then depending on the strategy 
shaping is done before IPSec and before the shaping on the physical 
device if you apply shaping on it. Take a look at the LARTC mailing 
list. It's perhaps a better place for such questions.
