Description of problem:
Every time pump gets a new lease, it insists on adding new ipchains rules
to allow nameservers responses. ordinarily this would be a good thing, but
my ipchains rulesets are getting very long, and repetitive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set up some ipchains rules
2. run pump
3. wait for a lease to renew.
Actual Results: suckage.
Expected Results: non suckage.
(nameserver IPs changed to protect the innocent)

interest of good science, here are the answers (6 months later == (me == slacker)).
mrwacky[root]/# cat /etc/pump.conf
mrwacky[root]/# cat /root/bin/pumpage
if [ $1 = "up" ] ; then
mail -s "Lease $1" firstname.lastname@example.org << HERE
Here is the info: $1 $2 $3
closing as supported products don't use pump anymore
