#111 new enhancement

vuurmuur daemon should not be running as root

We may only need CAP_NET_ADMIN but perhaps we should build using libiptc then as opposed to running iptables/iptables-restore as I'm not certain how capabilities translate to forked processes.

libiptc is not supported by the netfilter project to be used by 3rd party tools like Vuurmuur. It doesn't have a stable API. So using that is not an option.
