The iptables-persistent package is missing from those wiki pages. I
haven't tried it, but it may be worth looking at.

Maybe you could just install iptables-persistent and distribute the
iptables rules that you want, using puppet for example (of course, if
you're using puppet you would automate the installation of the package
too). Or, you could build your own local version of the package with
the default configuration you want.
