This is a cut down version of netscript-2.4, which is just the ipfilter
iptables/ip6tables management implementation.  This provides iptables and
ip6tables management with a cyclic backup history, via iptables-restore
and iptables-save.
This is designed to work with ifupdown, and is better than iptables-persistent
as you can roll back filter changes if you have made a mistake.
