The bug is actually in the iptables tutorial -- the code does fail if you put
the ! in a certain location:

# iptables -A foo -m limit --limit ! 1/sec
iptables v1.2.11: Unexpected `!' after --limit

I've submitted a patch to warn on both placements of the exclamation.

However, Harald is right here -- there is no easy way to solve this without
breaking backwards compatibility (short of creating a new limit match altogether).
