Subject:   Ipfilter nat vs ipfw divert + natd performance

I've set up an old Pentium to NAT my little brother's cablemodem using
ipfw/natd.  Would I see much better performance from ipfilter?  (I
assume that in-kernel NAT would be faster and have more consistent
latency than a user process which might not be scheduled for a while?)
The family does play a game of Tribes now and then, so unpredictable
10ms delays would not be fun for them.
