Check out /usr/share/system-config-kickstart/firewall.py for the scoop
on this. Ranges will work in s-c-kickstart because the Python script
takes the user's entry as a verbatim string and just passes it into the
configuration file.  That's probably a moot point, since the page in
Charles' tutorial originally under discussion concerned only system-
config-securitylevel, which doesn't work the same way.  Interesting
stuff!  (And it makes me want to get more into Python, which I keep
meaning to do, if only I could get the spare time.)  

Charles, I guess you're off the hook for that one, but you may want to
check the Rawhide version or wait for FC4 to see if there's a change.
