In my mind, i think its perfectly acceptible that any 'server'  would
be required to change the firewall settings from the non-default as
part of its configuration.  The default firewall rules don't allow
most services from being seen from clients already. Is http allowed
through by default in fedora's firewall or do you have to configure
the firewall to let it through?
If the securitylevel tool included the ability to disable the default
ipt_recent ruleset wouldn't that be enough to satify server
configuration needs? If this were a check-box in the
firewall/securitylevel setup pane during install or firstboot would
that be too heavy a burden?
