[Todd.Miller@courtesan.com: Re: hmmmm what is the future of ipf ??]

is there currently any source or patches we could/should be using to test ipfw?
i have to have firewalls in the networks that i work with, and while i have
been using OpenBSD with IPF, i will drop IPF before I drop OpenBSD.

FreeBSD ships with both ipfw and ipf.  The current plan is for
OpenBSD to transition to ipfw...
