The ipfw packet tagging patch was committed to src tree and will be MFCed  
to RELENG_6 about this weekend. I am currently working on ng_tag(4)  
netgraph node which could deal with tags (see  
http://antigreen.org/vadim/freebsd/ng_tag/) - I think, in theory it is  
possible to tag-based routing inside netgraph onto netgraph interfaces.
