m0n0wall pulls those stats from netstat, but I can't seem to find a
flag to netstat that will clear them.  ('man netstat' talks about a
'-z' flag, but it doesn't seem to do what I anticipated it would)

From 'man netstat':
     netstat -s [-s] [-z] [-f protocol_family | -p protocol] [-M core]
             [-N system]
             Display system-wide statistics for each network protocol, for a
             particular protocol_family, or for a single protocol.  If -s is
             repeated, counters with a value of zero are suppressed.  If -z is
             also present, reset statistic counters after displaying them.

Maybe that will at least lead you in the right direction.  You can
execute netstat from /exec.php
