You were wrong. OpenBSD doesn't move towards SMP model. Locking more
recent pf is not simplier, but the opposite.

How many bugs have you closed after the previous bulk import? Why should
we expect anything good from new import if the previous one was a PITA?
And still I don't see any answer on the question: what exact features or
perfomance improvements are we going to obtain from "the new pf"?

Is there any PR filed on that? I didn't even receive a mail about that.
