And you use it by saying "modprobe ip_masq_ftp" and it just
works?  Is it only available if your kernel is built with
"CONFIG_MODULES=y"?  I built without modules... (I figured
since my needs weren't changing on the firewall the extra
bit of security was worth it, but if modprobe is the only
way to include this feature, I'll go back...)
