This what I love about BSD, they port each others code when they need it, and they don't flame each others.

I love that PF was made so easy to manage for average user and designed with security in mind. ;)

Have they come up with some sort of script or front end to make writing the pf.conf easier? I know it's a very secure firewall, and the syntax is easier to understand than Linux's iptables, but when I used OpenBSD I was pretty frustrated at having to understand so much technical detail just to get a basic firewall up and running.

There is a default pf.conf to edit, the pf FAQ explains it. There will never, ever, be simpler.
