Yes. I've read Harald Welte announce. I think, that module should stay
till some userspace accounting tool based on /proc/net/ip_conntrack
fields will be created.

My module is mostly used by small ISP (lets say "home" ISP, 100-200
users) as source for rrdtool to create traffic graphs for each IP. It
was developed to replace 200-400 traffic accounting rules with single
one.
