I've been distracted from AutoFW and libnl by an old idea of mine for firewall implementation, a project which is currently nameless is now working on my machine. Thanks to <whomever> in the netfilter team that thought to create the QUEUE target and libipq, it now works in user mode under the temporary name of umfw (user-mode firewall).

The first stage was to create a simple interpreter firewall, the second stage was to create a compiled firewall (compile the firewall to C and then compile to object code), the next stage is to make it work in the kernel as a target for a netfilter rule and a shared object for netfilter to be able to add this rule. Third stage is now in progress.
