I use pf since its newer (I think?) and I came from just 
works and the config file is nice and sweet.

I had thought that modulate state would put a load on my proc, but 
sheesh, its a p4-3.06 - thats more than robust for a router.

I wonder if we should file a bug on this?

I am glad my post helped here. I still use modulate state for any 
INCOMING connections though (www/smtp/etc).
