    Thanks @ahgittin for your comments.
    My idea is slightly different: I wanted to make the `saveIptablesRules` more portable
across distros.
    For rhel/centos the suggested way is to use `service iptables save` while for debian/ubuntu
it is available a package called `iptables-persistent` which install a service on the box
that save the iptables rules any time they change, afaik.
    Instead `iptables-save` seems misused here as it is generally useful when you want to
export iptables rules to a file using i.e.: `iptables-save > /etc/sysconfig/iptables` and
then `iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables` but this doesn't look helpful here. wdyt?
