the only thing you need to bear in mind is that all requests on non-open 
ports will timeout.  Now this is exactly what you want, except for the ident 
service.  Why you ask, everytime you send an e-mail an ident request is made 
to your machine which normally fails saying connection refused or something.  
With the stealth patch this will time out, every e-mail will take at least 30 
seconds to send before it actually even leaves your machine.

This is solved by the 'nullident' server.  This is the only problem I had.
