The feature of interest in mod_evasive is that its limitations are applied to
individual incoming IPs such that no single requesting IP can exceed the
configured number of requests within the configured interval.  

mod_quota is more for a hosting environment, where you want to make sure that
bigbuns.com, which is Joe Smith's site hosted on your server, doesn't transfer
more than 4 gigs of bakery pictures per day.
