No, as done in FreeBSD, pf can be brought in without ALTQ. ALTQ happens to
tie in very well and the pf/ALTQ combo is very powerful, so it'd be nice
to see them together -- I know several of us are awaiting that :) The
major problem with ALTQ for FreeBSD is the fact that an import is very
intrusive and touches many many things, so it's rather hard to do while a
lot of other work is going on.
I did update the ALTQ patchset to work for 5-CURRENT, but due to
the lack of interest, it also faded away in the background. Most
of the changes ALTQ patchset makes are not necessary and can be
considered cosmetic. Except for the ones made to the NIC code.
