Agreed. How would you integrate it in the current structure (and please
feel free to change my proposal if you think it helps) ?

This is definitely one of my main goals. When you see some options that
are not integrated in the structure, please let me know. I would be glad
to integrate all possible configuration options for fine-tuning a
machine. I think I will stick to "ip" ,"ipchains" and "ipmasqadm" for
the first stage. Mabye support for "ifconfig" will be integrated altough
it is outdated.
