Subject: [gentoo-releng] firewall support in genkernel

Hi Gals, Guys,

I was about to file a request/bug about including iptables support in 
genkernel. I noticed someone has filed this report already, but it was closed 
as a wontfix almost a year ago. The reason for this was that iptables 
shouldn't be forced on users. Personally I don't see building a few extra 
modules as forcing something on users, but that's a different debate.

I can imagine, one year later with new insights and tools, it's now possible 
to include (optional) iptables support out of the box with genkernel. If I 
file a request/bug will it be closed as a wontfix?
