I'm perfectly happy with those sorts of people running gentoo.  The
educational issues around selinux have already shaken out a good
number of 'those' people. This change would be a minor pertubation in
comparison i think.

Of course there maybe a default techical solution here... can a
default ipt_recent rule set be constructed to target the most
sensitive ports? Maybe its most reasonable to do this to ssh and the
imap/pop services? Maybe its only reasonable to protect ssh by
default?  Lots of room to provide a default use of ipt_recent that
strikes a compromise to off or on for all ports.  I'm fine with
incremental changes that turn this on for only ssh by default if this
is the most reasonable compromise.
