I've started maintaining the genkernel kernel configs pretty much
exclusively.  I see no problem with iptables support being added.  The
best would be if you attached a patch against the current configs, as it
would be easier on me, as I actually have to apply them to two places
(genkernel SVN, and releng kconfigs for 2007.0) for the next release.
The main change is that (for at least x86/amd64) we're trying to make
the default kernel, which is also used on the LiveCD, as generic as
possible and as feature filled as possible.
