and to doubly stress, it's EXPERIMENTAL and that it's only released as a
prototype possible OS platform for m0n0wall as we progress forward. do not
use 1.3a1 in any production environment in any way.
the only thing which has changed between 1.2 and 1.3a1 is the underlying OS
from FreeBSD 4.11 to FreeBSD 6.0. as such it does provide for an apples to
apples test between the two.
additionally, 1.3a1 does not yet take into account some improvements which
are inherent in 6.0 but not available in 4.x. over the next few alpha
releases, i'll start turning these things on to see if they make
performance better or if they break anything which was already working.

alternatively, just hit ctrl-D to exit the shell and have rc.initial
spawned. i think the next version will include an rc.initial option to
spawn a shell.
the reason i left a shell running was to allow testers to perform any
additional commands easily in the event exec.php fails to execute. if this
becomes the next beta/full m0n0wall release, rc.initial will be run instead.

which is another option, to port the firewall from ipfilter to pf. new
functionality which could also be introduced would be redundancy with CARP.
i'd appreciate testing in these areas:
o functionality - check if the move to 6.0 breaks anything which worked
o enhancements, if any
