Personally, I'd like for it to be as granular as is reasonably possible i.e.
more or less achieving feature parity with iptables -Z. I go into specific
detail in the other bug, including some suggestions as to how the nft syntax
could look for granular reset actions.

That said, I appreciate that this might not be trivial to implement or that it
cannot necessarily be considered as a development priority. As the first course
of action, if both of "nft reset quotas" and "nft reset counters" were to cover
all anonymous instances, that would address this bug, along with one of the
requests that I made in bug 1401. In and as of itself, that would be a nice

If anyone can figure out how to support granular actions thereafter, then so
much the better.
