Hello! These three patches make it possible to use `guix refresh` to updateiptables (with signature verification etc). It seems overkill to have a full updater for a single package, althoughthe latest iptables version require a few other packages fromnetfilter.org. Tips for how to generalize this welcome!

I was thinking we could have a generic FTP updater (ratherFTP-with-signature updater). It would match packages whose source isfetched over ftp already, or packages that have a special 'ftp-urlproperty, say. How does that sound? In the meantime your 3 patches LGTM. You can definitely apply #2 and#3; as for #1, I think it’s fine, and we can always remove it when wehave a more generic updater. Thanks! Ludo’.
