I'm undecided on this.  I'll almost certainly merge the iptables stuff
with Linus, but it might be wisest to keep NAT separate.  This implies
that the backwards compatibility stuff will also be separate though.

That which isn't merged will remain modular, but I might make it
easier to patch into monolithic kernels...

Hacking time.
