Hi there!

as maybe you already know, nftables has been merged into linux,
scheduled for release with kernel 3.13 [0].
There is a how-to [1] to test it.

nftables includes a compatibility layer, that allows a painless
migration from iptables to nftables.

nftables also features an API, called libnftables [2]. This API adds
some interesting features to build other apps in top of it.

This software is a major upgrade in the Linux world, and I think that
when the times arrives, Debian should adapt to nftables.

I haven't heard any word in Debian about nftables, so I just wanted to
comment it here, I case you missed something.

Best regards.
