Down with the mangle table! :-)

I can't quite figure out exactly what it is you mean. If I'm wrong,
sorry in advance ;-)
Are you talking about a userspace-based iptable registration system
where you can have iptables with built-in chains without patching the
kernel? Something like X where you load .so files like kernel modules
and access the table using either current iptables or a newer program?
If you are, good! That sounds cool, but looks like a 2.5 thing
and also might be somewhat slow.
