for what? a kernel with compiled in iptable - support is slower than a
minimum kernel (shorter code paths) and I don't want to see (l)users to
mess up with iptable scripts.

A "standard" user shouldn't have any servers (except samba | ssh |
smtpd) enabled, there should be no need for iptable scripts which could
not be satisfied by hosts.(deny|allow)
