I tried doing this, but it turns out that wlan devices don't appear to send 
devd LINK_UP / LINK_DOWN events.  It would be nice to have a clean solution to 
this.  By default, using the stock rc scripts, my router is currently not able 
to forward packets from the WiFi until I've logged into it and manually run 
'service pf restart', which is a bit crazy.  I've hacked around it by having a 
script run from rc.local that sleeps for 60 seconds and then restarts a few 
things, but that's really, really ugly.  

On closer inspection, pf doesn't fail silently, it complains about a syntax 
error in my config file because wlan0 is not a known interface.

We therefore have an rc ordering problem if you want to use pf and WiFi at the 
same time.  This problem was introduced some time between 9.2 and 10.0.
