No, as done in FreeBSD, pf can be brought in without ALTQ. ALTQ happens to
tie in very well and the pf/ALTQ combo is very powerful, so it'd be nice
to see them together -- I know several of us are awaiting that :) The
major problem with ALTQ for FreeBSD is the fact that an import is very
intrusive and touches many many things, so it's rather hard to do while a
lot of other work is going on.

CARP is less problematic from what I hear, a FreeBSD port has bee ready
for almost a week now.

Either way they're all technologies that myself and others would love to
see in DragonFly.
