No. Too late. Additinally to the points mentioned by others, this
comes to mind:
 it's image loss, specially so close after the recent vulnera-
 re-naming will produce ideas, like pf has holes and Theo was
required to use ipf code, secretely.
 in the long run, Darren has won in people's minds because
[3.1] even _you_ are trusting rather in ipf than in pf;
[3.2] whatever has been said against ipf in the last year will hit
back against you.
Besides this, I feel it unfair to all, Daniel (and all others) and
What are the pro's?
