Don't know much (not to say nothing) about windows firewalling & the
interfaces one needs to talk to them. 

But _what_ I know is: a firewall needs to be fast. The big guys in
networking put a lot of effort into pushing as much package processing as
possible into the hardware-layer.

And as much as I love python - I do not see it here, beyond a
proof-of-concept.
