Well, I intended to use a dedicated PC for filtering anyway. Running
either NetBSD or Drawbridge on it doesn't make much of a difference, as
long as it's at least a 386 with a 40 MB harddisk.

I have looked at Drawbridge, as well as another package called K(arl)bridge,
both support just two ethernet segments. I'd like to connect at least three
ethernet segments and a SLIP link. BTW, I've heard that the commercial
version of Karlbridge might support such a configuration.
