Then we'd have to implement per-rule counters that default to
IPFW_VERBOSE_LIMIT but that could be changed to anything.  That's a very
different setup than what we currently have.

(Another thing I just thought of is that this could cause DoS attacks on
the system if a user compromised root and then set the limit to a very
high number.)
