Summer of Code is finished so i released my work about libalias,
and i would appreciate if anyone try it out and report.
There's a tarball here: http://ubi8.imc.pi.cnr.it/~flag/libalias/libalias.tgz
or if you prefer perforce: http://perforce.freebsd.org/depotTreeBrowser.cgi?FSPC=//depot/projects/soc2005/libalias&HIDEDEL=NO
there's a readme inside that explains pretty much everything you need to know.
For more information about the project: http://wikitest.freebsd.org/moin.cgi/PaoloPisati
or to summarize the changes respect to plain libalias:
-run as kld in 4.x, 5.x and 6.x (actually it was already working in 6.x)
-added log support to libalias kld
-integrated with ipfw (nat action added to ipfw)
-moved from a monolithic deisgn to a modular one
-every protocol supported (except for tcp, udp, ip and icmp) is now
a module loadable at run time
-module works both when libalias run as kld or user land lib
-something else that i don't remember now...
Feel free to report about bugs or design issue,
