Yes, it just would be nice if the users who *actually* need it, could 
give a hands-on (hint, hint!) :)  What I am suspecting here is, that 
most people would do perfectly with pf as well.

Ipfw *has* to go, because it makes our main ip_input/ip_output grossly 

So maybe somebody wants to get some kernel hacking experience?  It's 
not hard at all.
