Why does wicked need to know about firewalls anyway?

Isnt wicked in charge of the whole networking stack and stuff in coop
with systemd. There cant be no shorewall without wicked compatibility
as far as I understand. Apparently shorewall has some references or
support to systemd, but wicked is opensuse specialty only am I wrong?

wicked knows nothing about my own firewall script. I have maintained my
own for years, from before SuSEfirewall, and it works just fine. A
firewall is nothing but a collection of iptables rules. I don't see
much reason for wicked to know about it.

If it does have a need to fiddle with the firewall, wicked ought to
provide some hooks which every firewall can interface with.
