Not read them links but it has been at least half a decade since ipset 
came out...if it still has outstanding issues then I guess it has to be 
OpenBSD if you need to make rules involving thousands of ip addresses 
and ip ranges.

FreeBSD has had pf ported over from OpenBSD but I wonder how stable and 
good its implementation is...
