And so far - except for the yet incomplete module from NethServer - all
the talk was around various rules generators.
Could you please explain in more words what you wish to accomplish ? UTM is a great buzzword and integrating under the same umbrella firewall management and UTM is not trivial. Especially in a clustered world where part of the firewalling is done via appliances from various providers such as Cisco, Juniper, Vyatta, Sonicwall and Bluecoat

Exactly my point. What other tools do you have in mind ? And WHY do you
need proxy / caching on this machine ? My main proxy for instance is
quite far from some of the border firewalls. Up to 5000 km away. And
being able to maintain the firewall rules in a single place and push
them as needed is handy

All right. And what other goals are there ?
