Anyway to verify that (maybe with a quick test)?

  From looking at Manuel's PR's to FreeBSD with the m0n0wall patches
  that change ordering, I believe it's ipfw -> ipnat -> ipfilter on
  outgoing, and reverse that on incoming.  (ipfw == traffic shaping,
  ipnat == NAT, ipfilter == fw rules)

  So if you're talking LAN hosts going out to the internet, traffic
  shaper applies before NAT.  If you're talking traffic coming into the
  internet, it also applies before NAT (i.e. will still have whatever
  public IP as source)
