thanks very much for this, I'll look at it tonight or on the weekend.

I've thought about an iptables plugin before, but my approach would have
differed, I think. I would have used the `ULOG' target to select the
packets I'm interested in and transfer them to userspace, then use
`libnfnetlink_log' or possibly `ulogd' with the pcap-interface to
receive the packets and analyze them somehow.

Are the files under `libiptc' really necessary? The Debian-packet
`iptables-dev' appears to provide those header-files and libraries..

Okay, I'll put the firewall-script under contrib/ then..
