I am a bit familiar with firewall-cmd, but need to learn more.  But I am 
looking out to other functions and management.  I am looking at 
multi-function devices and such.  So I would like something beyond cli 
for the interface.

Wild thought.  a php-firewall package with the policy in MariaDB  :)

Then I can tie it into RESTCOMF and I2NSF.  Got to talk to some people 
here at IETF tomorrow...

But I will look again at webmin.  Use to use it a lot.
