Hi all!

Some time ago I post a mail in this list 
asking about how manage packets  that was captured with "libipq" and "QUEUE" 
target in different threads or process.

Now with the new "NFQUEUE" target I can have many process reading parckets 
in different queues numbers and using "nth match" to spread equitably over 
all process the captured packects. My questions are:

1-What libipq's functions change and how? I look in the manpage in the 
recent 1.3.3 iptables release and don't find anything.

2-Is possible in the future include "nth match" patch in the mainline of 
kernel or this patch never will be included?

3-I'm in the right way? some suggestions?

Thank in advance
