No doubt.

On the other hand, it was a little bit misleading of Luigi to suggest netmap to a
user who merely asked about tuning FreeBSD network (routing/firewall) performance :-)

netmap can no doubt be useful, but perhaps let's not overhype it before it
actually proves itself on practical tasks.  Or has it already?  I might have
missed that.
