[pf in -current]

Upgrading from netbsd-4 to -current a while back broke my http (squid) and
smtp redirects. I've been meaning to collect the details for a while.
Anybody else seen that?

A few months ago, I looked at npf because I had an SMP machine to set up as
a tunneling router. At the time, it lacked important features, and was
undocumented beyond source code and man pages. I don't know if the
presentation given on EuroBSDCon changed that somewhat; npf desperately
needs something along the lines of the ipf howto document.

ATM, it looks like NetBSD 6 will ship with three half-baked ip filter
packages at the same time, where Linux had only one per major release...
