 Wow, these bugs live forever....
 Let's see, my suggestion included the line
   $fwcmd add pass all from to $ip via $ip
 on the theory that limited broadcast should be permitted. David correctly points
 out that the broadcast address as the source is always wrong. Whoops.
 OK, so what I think it really should say is
   $fwcmd add pass all from ${net}:$mask to via $ip
 Does that seem plausible?
