grumble grumble. id argue there are similar concerns for traffic over vxlan, 
tun, and tap, but they lack a magic sysctl.

ipsec.conf includes a "PACKET FILTERING" section that discusses this for 
ipencap, we could point etherip.4 at that or move this kind of into the pf.conf 
manpage.

another interesting idea would be to have tunnel interfaces take a "tagged" 
configuration option that would allow them to check that their encapsulated 
traffic has been tagged by some other subsystem, like ipsec or pf.
