May your gods bless you with beautifull women, milk and honey :)

Seriously, I can remember Peter Postma <> mentioned something about him workink on pf & ALTQ last time I asked about it.

I was also wondering if anyone is working on kernel implementation of CARP.
And if you guys think adding a possibility to rename network device names with ifconfig just like on FreeBSD is something to be considered on NetBSD.

Example, lets rename iwi0 to wlan0:

# ifconfig -l
iwi0 lan0 pfsync0 pflog0 lo0 gif0 disc0

# ifconfig iwi0 name wlan0
# ifconfig -l
wlan0 lan0 pfsync0 pflog0 lo0 gif0 disc0

I love that feature for many reasons.
