I think it's better to have a separate 'firewall' package,
where all the stuff that have to do with firewalling can be put,
like: ipfwadm, ipfwadm-wrapper, ipchains, ipmasqadm (with lib's)
the init scripts (more than one?) etc, etc... A fiend is working
on a 'firewall config program', I'll see how faar he have come...

netbase is being (have been?) split up, so no need to put in
the firewalling stuff there.
