I don't like the patch from a security standpoint.  It makes it to
easy to turn off a firewall.  If you want to be that stupid about
security, you should just make the default be 'accept all' and be done
with it.  I'm opposed to this patch unless you can get the security
officer to sign off on it.  The defaults are there for a reason so
that we fail 'safe' from a security point of view.

The real fix is to fix the abi problems.
