The English (non-American) version is

So, to use in C7's firewalld (some of, because it is doubtful all
exists) the functionality of IP Tables, one must first convert one's
adequately expressed IP Tables wishes into a pseudo language which then
changes the longer and more convoluted firewalld 'instruction' back into
normal IP Tables syntax ?

Some may innocently believe this is wonderful for Red Hat's eventual
Lindoze Linux but how is this making life easier for
computer-knowledgeable people ?  Is it genuinely sensible ?
