I would appriciate a possiblity to automagically load masquerading modules
for ftp, irc, ... via an init script at boot time. As ipchains eventually
sets up masquerading, it would be an idea to enhance it to load protocol
modules, too.

Realistically, such an enhancement would need to be made during
the beginning of a new development cycle (as opposed to an errata
release).  The ipchains masquerade modules are not supported in the
2.4 kernel series, and as such, this feature request would only
be valid for Red Hat Linux 7.0 and earlier.
The new 2.4.x kernel uses iptables features to implement similar
functionality now.
