Has anyone talked with the s-c-firewall maintainer and other
interested parties to see what could be done to change the model by
which it works?  E.g.:

* Punching holes where needed to support Avahi, user file sharing, ...

* Setting networks up for trust, so you could operate more freely on
  your home wireless, but be less trusting at a new wireless network
  you don't own
