I see, thanks Daniel, it seems something like it isn't available OOTB
but it doesn't look too difficult to implement, except that I have no
intentions to dispense with pfsense because it's just too good. Thus
iptables are no good, my BSD-foo needs improving but the same approach
will probably work with pf.

Thanks Nick for the pointers, but anything that doesn't require me to
roll out new hardware wins :-)
