At this point, given configuration bits/cold facts have been exchanged
regarding what are good settings in ip_nat.h, can we please consider
this thread dead?

If someone would like to send Darren a patch or an email asking him
if'd be interested in making some of the ip_nat.h values into
sysctl's, that'd be dandy, however I just assume not see this thread
wind on about easier configuration of ipfilter and friends.
Performance != making sysadmin life easier.
