Hi there,

Something I've used on all my servers is a high-level firewall description 
language called "Firehol"

More information about this project can be found at http://firehol.sf.net and 
perhaps it's most curious feature is with one firehol script, you can port it 
to many other filtering languages (i.e. iptables, pf etc...).

Cheers,
Chris.
