My thought of that... Anyone shouldn't replace or remove neither, but just
add PF to have one more choice of firewall. :-) Unless, IPF and PF can't
play together nice, then it explains.

If add PF, then it means one of you will have to bring ALTQ in too? CARP
will be insterest to play with too, btw.
