the config.xml has allowance for repeatable xml tags of
<shellcmd></shellcmd> under the <system></system> element which will
execute the given shell command. however, do note that in the respect of
net.inet.ip.fw.one_pass, it is only run _after_ traffic shaper has been
configured. so, though you may have a shell command reversing the one_pass
setting, the next enable/disable phase of the traffic shaper will set it
back to 1 again.

however, if you have the <shellcmd> set, and then turn on traffic shaping,
a reboot will make sure that your shellcmd is run after the shaper is
configured (and one_pass set to 1).
