Came home from a weekend away, just to find pb22 with aliases had come
out during my absence. This is quite nice indeed.

But Manuel, I don't know if you have this still planned for later (and
that this is the logical first step) or that you didn't see exactly *what*
I meant with the original post on "symbolic names":

I specifically meant a way to name *groups* of IP's and networks.  so I
can have a single rule apply to several nets at once. E.g. 5 different
remote networks that all need the same treatment from my firewall. I want
to call them "remote office nets" and be done with a single rule per
protocol instead of having to create 5 rules, one for each net.
