There is no big discussion about condition online but one line at
6.2. Decisions about individual patches
condition Stays in POM, because it's ugly and ruleset updates are faster
I don't know more than that because I didn't attend that netfilter workshop.
I already had a discussion about the future of condition with Harald back in
2004 and he basically said the same as Patrick now:
I think something like condition is needed as temporary solution until the
proposed fast and reliable way to change rules is available. I very much
appreciate your work on porting it to 2.6, I already had planned doing that
in the nex two or three month.
