This bug comes from a suggestion of Martin's, so can be accepted with confidence. See the 21972 ref above "You could try putting in an enhancement request to make drakfirewall aware of libvirt, but I don't know that it would get any attention".

drakx-net SRPM has various committers (tmb in the past), so assigning this globally.
