All general statements are wrong, including this one.
wether it can handle a T1 or not isn't the question. I promise, as least as
long as it runs ipfilter, it won't be able to handle 1.5 MBit/s of my
traffic with my ruleset requirements.
well, with pf, you have a chance ;-)
btw... anyone left questioning pf's matureness?
$ sudo pfctl -si

3.0-stable with pf near-3.1.
Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
