AltQ + ng_iface

I am looking at using pf + AltQ + mpd instead of my original ipfw + dummynet + 
ppp setup but it seems that ng_iface doesn't have any AltQ hooks :(

I had a look at it to see if they could be retrofitted but alas it appears the 
ng_iface driver is not very much like others (ie no queueing of packets?) so 
it would need more work..

I could use ppp(8) and do queueing on tun, but I would prefer to use mpd as 
all of the packet movement is in the kernel which makes sense to me.

Does anyone have any patches for this? Or is it just a dumb idea and I should 
live with ppp(8)? :)
