It's a fair point though.  I brought over a page for dports copied from
FreeBSD manual and then modified it.  We could and probably should do
the same instead of asking users to do it.

DF Jails are basically stuck in 2005, or in other words they are about
equal to what FreeBSD had 9 years ago.  Anything specifically developed
fdor jails probably won't work because it surely takes advantage of the
new interfaces and features FreeBSD offers  I put out a GSoC project to
Sync our jails with FreeBSD but nobody bit on it.  It's still something
many of us would welcome somebody try.

Purely as a guess, I'd the candidates would be support FreeBSD's pfsense
or NetBSD's npf.  I don't know where the latter stands, and both a
probably a tremendous amount of work, but less that updating PF.  This
is another one of those tasks that really needs doing but nobody is
personally interested to do.

I haven't heard of anyone doing it either.
