No, not at this time.  It's something you'll probably see in 1.3, and
pfsense, a m0n0wall-derivitive, supports this now.

30,000 states is a LOT to be chewing up with one machine, I don't care
how many P2P apps you're running.  I would look for settings in the
P2P apps to limit the number of concurrent connections.  Most
BitTorrent clients have this, for example.  One of those apps is
seriously misbehaving.
