:Does anyone here have any plans to import PF and ALTQ into FreeBSD? It's now 
:in FreeBSD 5.x base, so it shouldnt be too hard to import?
:Max Laier made a test import and it worked out pretty well, but it looks 
:like he's too buys at these times to import it for us. I also know that Matt 
:don't want things like security prioritized at this stage, but it still 
:would be nice to have the features. Alot of people are using OpenBSD on 
:their gateways/firewalls just because of PF/ALTQ.
:And some of us tries to run DragonFly on all boxes they can, just to help 
:out with bug reporting :)

    Well, more like it's not a priority for *me*, yet.  There's still a lot
    of basic infrastructure that needs to get done before I can turn my
    attention to higher level things.  This certainly does not prevent others
    from working on the issue, though.

    If it can be done as a module, and does not interfere with Jeff's work,
    it can go into the system at any time.  Otherwise I would suggest waiting
    a few more weeks to let Jeff get farther along with the network stack
    before we start ripping up the kernel again with PF/ALTQ.
