Default Firestarter obsolete

Hi guys,

a user(Sven-Hendrik Haase) brought to my attention that firestarter
has issues (memleaks).

Well there are apparently some patches available somewhere .... but

- last release was Jan 29th, 2005 (yes that means 4 years)
- there seems no activity in the project
- it deals with iptables and the kernel (which has changed quite a bit
over the last 4

years :P ) and is somewhat crucial to system security
- in this state, I don't feel like fixing it(I don't maintain it
anymore anyway) but I do

consider it a security issue

Proposal to fix: Let's get riddence of it.
