raspbmc - getting rid of iptables

I don't need a firewall on my Raspberry PI which runs XMBC (raspbmc distribution) - it's in a dedicated subnet behind a firewall. Furthermore, there are several reports of iptables having an impact on the performance of network playback, causing buffering issues (although I didn't do any benchmark myself).

I modified /etc/network/if-up.d/secure-rmc by adding "exit 0" right at the beginning like this:
#!/bin/bash

exit 0

dec_to_bin() {
...

And then I ran:
apt-get remove iptables

This was followed by a reboot.

nb: the secure-rmc file appears to be a raspbmc addition, and it could probably just be deleted instead.
