Looks like a good module, but in this case the server hasn't received a GET yet (and won't), so I don't think it would have a chance to do any URI pattern matching...I haven't tried it myself (yet... it's on the plate), but mod_tsunami (http://bert.tuxfamily.org/mod_tsunami/) may work better. It limits the number of connections on a per-directory basis, using the apache scoreboard. The primary issue I had with mod_throttle when I was looking at it (a few months back) was that it was fairly CPU intensive. This may or may not be an issue depending on how much traffic you push on a "normal" day (whatever that is).
