 I believe a timeout of one month before changing the default packet
 filter to pf is enough.
 If folks want to stick to using ipf by default, they should either
 bug Darren to write documentation for this piece of software, or write
 it themselves.
 Since there is not a single valid reason to keep ipf as the default
 in NetBSD, I very (very) strongly suggest we make a switch if by
 October 23 there is not up-to-date documentation.
