There can be an open discussion about what you want but just keep in
mind that making work for others is reasonably frowned upon.
As I've said - if someone wants to port the updated pf to freebsd-head
and go through the process of owning it, then please, do the work.
Noone is going to stop you doing that. The kernel is in a much better
state now for maintaining multiple packet filters and it's entirely
possible to run this as a project where you build it and the tools as
an external module that'll compile for both freebsd-head and
You don't have to have a debate bout it. Just do it. :)
