No disrespect intended, but without being able to find more information 
about your dshaper project (which is defunct on freshmeat), and without 
open source code, I can't consider running it on my firewall.

Think about it for a second... "Try running this closed source, binary-only 
software on your firewall for me".  Unless I knew and trusted the source 
implicitly, I'd be a cowboy if I introduced this to my 
first-point-of-security in my environment!

Any chance that you'll publish anything at all about your project, so we 
can make an informed decision?  Maybe others here know you better than I, 
but I don't have any past history with the project, so my defenses are up....
