While source-based distros like Gentoo are not everyone's preference, it's 
worth noting that disabling systemd is just a matter of adding "-systemd" to 
the global USE flags. And the choice between iptables and firewalld is yours, 
not the system's. Both systemd and that accursed akonadi in KDE are yet more 
evidence of the *nix world being invaded by aliens, IMO ...
