Well, at least with all POSIX-compliant /bin/sh, which is what Linux is
likely to have, and nwfilter requires Linux.

It won't work with Solaris /bin/sh, but that's a much harder portability
target since it is so old (bourne shell, which pre-dates POSIX).  But
thankfully not an issue for this patch.

I've gone ahead and pushed it.
