But since this feature turned out to be contentious, I vote for throwing it out and just rely on iptables… I believe Jonathan argued that the re-mapping really is an orthogonal issue that does not conceptually belong into a qdisc, a valid points as by now everyone agrees…

One silly question from ignorant fool:  Can you do the iptables DSCP 
remapping in such a way that the qdisc still sees/prioritize based on 
them but clear/remap on output?
