> Neat! How do you use authpf?  Anything interesting?

It's only interesting if you use OpenBSD. authpf is a special shell that
allows for dynamic firewall rules  (pf) based on user credentials. E.g.,
user  uses  SSH  to  connect  to  firewall  and  then  firewall  applies
predefined set of rules to the firewall.

> Also, why would you be using exec?

File descriptor redirection/duplication/ksh co-processes, etc...

Why should exec be restricted to shell scripts only? :-)
