Turn the problem on its side....
cat /etc/iptables.header /etc/iptables.newstuff /etc/iptables.trailer > /etc/sysconfig/iptables
iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables
(basically the solution I did for an NFS server, where 'newstuff' and /etc/exports were
both machine-generated by a perl script that read a config file of authorized clients.
