I would like to deprecate ipfw (and dummynet, because it needs ipfw)
for the next release and remove it in 1.7.
Can you please show that pf is as fast as ipfw?
No, can't.  As I understand the current answers, we will remove ipfw 
from the main code path and get a pfil'ed version instead.  So this 
won't affect the speed after all.  Besides, if somebody cares about his 
filtering speed, he should do measurements.  I don't have the network, 
the equipment, nor the filter set to measure speed.
