We've already heard of Henning offering to help port a new pf but the olive branch has been extended even further. He responded to some comments of mine on twitter:

@HenningBrauer: @rhymebyter @feldpos I offered help/advice to whomever seriously attempts to update pf in @dragonflybsd AND @freebsd.

@HenningBrauer: @feldpos it takes someone in freebsd/netbsd/dragonfly to update their ancient pf versions, then code can flow bidirectional

Technical hurdles aside, that sounds like the beginning of an OpenPf to me...
