According to Miles Nordin in
<>, the ALTQ
that works with ipf is stable, but old and unmaintained. I wanted to
try out the pf version, since pf is now integrated into -current.
However, I didn't actually try it with -current because I wasn't clear
on whether any of the patches on Peter Postma's site still needed to
be applied to -current, and didn't have time to figure it out :)

In any case, I suppose I'll give traditional ALTQ a try, but of
course, if pf/ALTQ has problems, they need to be fixed. At this point,
I have no idea whether what I was seeing was due to user error or a
bug, but it does seem very unusual that packets were going into queues
that were defined, but not referenced at all in pf.conf.
