Well, I did say that I never tested it...  It's very likely that
NetworkManager completely ignores these /etc/network/ scripts.

Load the iptables rules on boot rather than when a network interface
comes up?  IIRC /etc/init.d/iptables even has built-in support for this:
you set up your firewall, then run 'sudo /etc/init.d/iptables save active'
and it will automatically restore that setup on boot.

If C gives you enough rope to hang yourself, C++ gives you enough rope to bind
and gag your neighborhood, rig the sails on a small ship, and still have enough
rope left over to hang yourself from the yardarm.
