What does this enhancement do?

Today I was attacked by a certain malicious user who, after signing up at the tracker, submitted four hundred tickets in at about three minutes.
What I propose is to make an (at least optional) anti-flood pause between tickets for, say, 30 seconds so a single user couldn't flood your tracker like this. A normal user can't submit a second ticket within such a time frame.
Thanks in advance!
