side discussion on whether

    term port-zero {
	from {
	    protocol [ tcp udp ];
	    port 0;
	then {

should have a first-fragment clause added to the from{}.

some of the discussion is as follows

    > and would that not just drop the first frag and let the rest of
    > the fragmented chunk through?

    (I believe to be the case) Currently your acl/filter will only
    drop the fragmented chunks and permit in the initial fragment
    (which has the ports).  This will either be 'bad' and cause you
    to have lots and lots of reassembly timeouts, or will atleast
    stop some 'oddball' udp/tcp based exploit on your RE :)
