I don't think that anyone works on this, I vaguely remember that I
read somewhere that there are licensing issues (BSD Licensce vs. GNU

Nope, but my personal rant is that I hate iptables for it's syntax.
pf has a human readable syntax and also a config file instead of
single commands on the command line.
And please don't recommend me any shorewall or a alike stuff I'm
talking about the plain firewall implented in the kernel and it's
native user space tool.
