+iptables\-apply will try to apply a new ruleset (as output by
+iptables\-save/read by iptables\-restore) to iptables, then prompt the
+user whether the changes are okay. If the new ruleset cut the existing
+connection, the user will not be able to answer affirmatively. In this
+case, the script rolls back to the previous ruleset after the timeout
+expired. The timeout can be set with \fB\-t\fP.
+When called as ip6tables\-apply, the script will use
+ip6tables\-save/\-restore instead.
