Hi, 


I would like to add an new feature 


in cluster.fw 


[IPALIAS] 

alias1 10.0.0.1 
alias2 10.0.0.2 
alias3 10.0.0.0/24 




this aliases can be use in vm and group rules and ipset 


[IPSET myset] 


192.168.0.1 
alias1 
172.16.0.1 



[group mygrouprules] 


IN ACCEPT alias2 


vmid.fw 
------- 
OUT ACCEPT net0 alias3 





finally, when we generate rules or ipset, we simply replace aliases by their ip/network address. 



one example of usage, if a vm change his ip address, we simply change the alias, without need to change any rules. 


What do you think about it ?
