[c-nsp] shaping outbound

I'm confused as to when and where it is possible to shape traffic.  I
have a 50Mbps internet connection from our ISP and I would like to
shape some of the download traffic using our 2821.  Here is what I
have setup:

lan users ----- g0/0 - 2821 - g0/1 ------internet

Currently I have no way of limiting someone from using up the entire
pipe.  My thought was to add a policy-map in the outbound direction on
the G0/0 interface and shape based on NBAR protocols or something like
that.   Apparently this is not the correct way to do this....If I
apply a policy-map in the outbound direction on G0/1 this helps
nothing because it only shapes the upload traffic which is minimal at
peak times.

Any idea on how to go about this?  Or Am I stuck with buying a
ridiculously expensive packet shaper or something of the sorts?
