[CentOS] fail2ban needs shorewall?

I want to try out fail2ban and notice that both, kbs-CentOS-Testing and 
ATrpms, have shorewall as a dependency. I do not use shorewall and have 
never used it. I have my own iptables/firewall script and am happy with 
it. Can I install shorewall without any ill effects to my current sue of 
iptables or would I need to use shorewall for firewalling from that point 
on? (It may be a good product, but I really don't want to learn yet 
another rule syntax.)
