Hi Phil,

I have started testing the IPv6 branch on some of our border routers  
that usually outputs ~10.000 iptables rules.
It wasn't a big effort to make the existing ruleset v4/v6 compatible.

Maybe it should be documented somewhere that also a construction like  
below is possible.
Because first a started to duplicate all the logic into router4 and  
router6 statements :-)

router DMZ outface eth0
  ipv4 group with dst ""
   ipv4 route all accept
  ipv4 group end

Can I help you out somehow on this?
Is the website auto-generated from a source in the GIT repository?
I could compare it will the manpages and add missing parts.
