It'd probably function, but it'd be a real pain to deal with.

This grouping functionality is already in pfsense, but ipfilter is
sufficiently different that rewriting is probably easier than porting.
The group from a URL or other external location is written in pfsense
HEAD but not well tested yet, it will make a future pfsense release
(probably 1.3). That code again is probably easier to rewrite than
port, though portions might be easier to port. I'd do it myself but
I'm not a developer, just a FYI for anyone with the skills and ability
to add this.
