Number of queues possible
ALTQ algorithm for PRIQ has a forced 15 queue limitation.
While the other algorithms are forced to a 4096 queue limit build time limit.
Triggered by http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,34435.0.html it would be nice to have the GUI spit out a nice error message when limit reached or remove the limit at all if possible.

PRIQ also doesn't allow the use of the same priority for more than one queue:
pfctl: q3 does not have a unique priority on interface vtnet0 /tmp/rules.debug:50: errors in queue definition
#define PRIQ_MAXPRI 16 /* upper limit of the number of priorities */

unique priority is mandatory now, which is incorrect
priq Priority Queueing. Queues are flat attached to the interface, thus, queues cannot have further child queues. Each queue has a unique priority assigned, ranging from 0 to 15. Packets in the queue with the highest priority are processed first.
same for FAIRQ
but in case of CBQ priority can be the same for different queues

Working as expected. Creating a queue with the same name or priority as another queue triggers the following errors:
The following input errors were detected:
A queue with the same name already exists.
The priority 15 is already used by queue x.
Marking as resolved.
