Did we not just have 2 iptables releases last month? Slow perhaps, but 
the rumours of the death of netfilter would appear to be greatly 
exaggerated. :)

I can't suggest anything to help with making more hours in the day, 
other than take a lot of westbound jet flights, and always continue 
westbound. ;) But I have a couple of ideas for the device shortage:

1. Skip surfing / dumpster diving
   Old "useless" machines are excellent netfilterers.
2. User-mode Linux
   Set up an entire network on one physical machine.
