As second thought, I think that I took the laziest way
in the sense that the set of used tools can certainly be reduced,
and hopefully reduced to a set of /sbin or /bin members only.
This might be a demanding work.
This is in fact one possibility.

An other one would be to keep the generated iptable and load it
at boot time instead of generating it at each boot time.
This a feature that can be added to FireHOL.

Best wishes,
