It would be nice but as it's been written in this thread, Open & Free
internals are quite different beasts, goals are different on both
platforms, so I doubt OpenPF will exist in the future.

Linux world will get rid of iptables one of these days, nftables
inclusion in mainline is a clear signal.

I don't really like linux firewalling engines but projects like OpenWRT
and Luci hide the command line hell in most cases, so I'm slowly
retiring FreeBSD/pf handcrafted appliances in favor of OpenWRT boxes.
