My biggest problem with pfSense is footprint.  I want to be able to run 
this in RAM and not need a hard disk or large solid-state storage to 
hold it.  I wouldn't mind a merged project, but only if there was a 
"slim" version that was essentially the core M0n0wall functionality.

ps: and no, given a choice of Windows, I still would have picked FreeBSD 
because that's the lowest risk AND greatest reward platform for most of 
the requirements gathered during Manuel's poll.
