what's the best iptables firewall package?

I remember back when ipchains were more common, and I had a little script called PMFirewall it helped the beginner setup a firewall with ease. e.g. asking what services you were running and what should access the net (a nice little shell script).

What is the best iptables firewall script is out there? in terms ease of setup.

Firestarter is quick & easy if your needs are simple.
I like Shorewall, but it requires some reading and a bit of configuration file editing.
