Google for "ipchains emulation" and you'll find tons of links to
messages about problems with said in-kernel emulation. May be this is why
you remember only conversion scripts? IPchains emulation was incomplete and

to convert scripts then to fight problems in emulation. But is was there -
that's for sure...
