   Heh, iptables(8) is good enough for all of that. Besides, I'm yet to see an individual user who is so fed up of iptables(8) ordering issue that he/she has to write a new application to do that. For most users firewall is hardly 3-4-5 rules, not more. I published my own little script earlier in this thread. Even firewalld's default rule-set is close to 5 actual rules, rest of it is just jumping from one chain to another, no?
