Default fail2ban needs shorewall?

I want to try out fail2ban and notice that both, kbs-CentOS-Testing and
ATrpms, have shorewall as a dependency. I do not use shorewall and have
never used it. I have my own iptables/firewall script and am happy with
it. Can I install shorewall without any ill effects to my current sue of
iptables or would I need to use shorewall for firewalling from that point
on? (It may be a good product, but I really don't want to learn yet
another rule syntax.)

I installed fail2ban from rpmforge and it has no dependencies. I use it with
the default CentOS firewall

fail2ban-0.8.2-2.el5.rf.noarch.rpm

Ah, thanks, I thought I had installed an rpm earlier that didn't have
dependencies, but I couldn't find the machine I did it on. I disabled the kbs
repo and I'm now getting it. yum wanted to install the older i386 rpm first,
though. Does the i386 override noarch, although the version is newer?

I installed on some x86_64 systems but you can specify noarch on the install
line. I don't know the precedence of i386 and noarch.
