Mine's a bit different, and rather shorter ... any comments welcome:




I don't want the network up without the firewall, so it goes before the
network. Likewise, I don't want it ever down, so there's no ExecStop.

/etc/network/firewall is a short script that sources firewall4 (and
firewall6 if I had one. I probably should ...).

I wasn't aware of or familiar with the idea of putting it somewhere else
and enabling/disabling it; I'm not sure if I need that.
