The thing that people often forget about ipfilter is that it is one of 
the only cross platform firewalls around. It runs on all the BSDs + 
Solaris, Linux (I think now), + most other unixs. This is important to 
some people. It is just a shame that development is slow; it does still 
happen but is just very slow.

Note that the pf rule syntax is also quite similar to ipfilter but IMHO 
much improved. I am in the progress of moving my ipfilter firewall to pf 
but only because I want ALTQ.
