Triggering/scripting VOIP to throttle users/protocols?

    I have a WRT54GL running Tomato. A few users on the connection like to use p2p. Two users use bit torrent (me being one) and one more uses limewire/gnuttella stuff.

    I have a Magic Jack line running on one of the computers that doesn't use p2p stuff and am wondering if its possible to have the router detect VOIP traffic and besides QoS prioritizing it to highest, throttle the P2P bandwidth on the other computers to < 5K/sec so as not to interfere with the VOIP call. Maybe it would be easier or better to just throttle total bandwidth to the rest of the computers but w/e I'm just trying to make VOIP Viable so I can kill the house phone line.

    I'm pretty sure Tomato can be setup to classify all those packets with IPP2p/Layer7 ... shouldn't it be possible (with one of the mods that allows per user/protocol throttling) to make this work with scripting or some other means?

    I've noticed that If I have been using bit torrent and a VOIP call comes in even if I kill bit torrent immediately and nothing else is using bandwidth the call quality tends to stay poor =|. Obviously I can disable my own bit torrent when I want to use VOIP But I cant go around to all the computers and change their settings every time.

    Quick overview of my network setup:
