It's only a matter of time until it appears in a stock distro.
User-side support is built-in with the "official" iptables-1.2.8
release, including the Severn/Taroon beta RPMs,
but a patch-and-compile is necessary on the kernel side.
Despite the tiny size and scope of the patch, I am reluctant to
stray from the stock kernels (up2date, client machines, etc.),
and I suspect (and hope) that many others would like to see the
tarpit target folded into the stock RH kernel.
