After reading about what boris has wrote, I have been working on 
something similar but in php.
It will show IPFW statistics, and generate rules much like Metacortex 
for OpenBSD. It can work
for both IPFW and IPF once a single configuration has been changed. 
Anyone got any comments,
or ideas people would like to see? Anyone think such an idea is useful ?.

Thanks in advance,
