Good point - everybody knows the benefits of PF, but there are some
losses.  Since it seems that everyone agrees that m0n0 should go to PF,
it couldn't hurt to begin building a list of 'gotchas'.  Besides the
above point, last I knew PF couldn't:

1)  Filter based on packet size - The small packet rules will have to be
re-written in the shaper wizard.

2)  Do source or destination masking - I know of no way to acheive the
masking with PF that you can with Dummynet

Anyone care to add or correct items on the list?
