SuSEpersonal-firewall - Reason for not using a default policy for INPUT
Just curious the reasons for not using default 'policy', but preferring 'back
stop' rules in SuSEpersonal-firewall. Can anyone explain the reasons?

Initial impression, would be that setting a policy of DENY on INPUT would be
more secure. The usage is commented on, but not explained which makes me
curious!
