Could we not use a proper firewall frontend so we don't need to manage all
rules to set up proper firewall rules for IPv4 and IPv6?  It's hard enough
to manage IPv4 properly and then handle Ipv6 on top of that isn't any
easier. Most tries I have seen doing that with ipv6 get it horribly wrong.

And not properly, I think. Yes, it is hard to set up a proper firewall to
follow all RFC:s that you should know. Better to reuse that coded into ufw,
shorewall etc.

No, I wouldn't done it better myself. That is why I don't do it "natively"
any more.
