Not sure about this particular firewall script (I've not reviewed it completely) but I use my own firewall script on my server with fail2ban. Basically all the fail2ban rules are inserted at the head of the chain so any offending IP's are blocked right away even before traversing the chains.

I've used my own firewall script and fail2ban for about 2 years without any issues.

If it works for you, use it. You don't need to fix something that's working perfectly, and this rc.firewall script isn't perfect, by any means.
