Well, I don't know if the project is still maintained here but ... I would like to know if there is any plan to include Mikrotik (http://www.mikrotik.com) support in fwbuilder.

Mikrotik RouterOS is embedded linux, and the firewall is netfilter, but with a different syntax than the standard iptables.

The syntax is described here:
Filter table: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:IP/Firewall/Filter
NAT table: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:IP/Firewall/NAT
Mangle table: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:IP/Firewall/Mangle

Packet flow is described in details here:
IPv4: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Packet_Flow
IPv6: http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:Packet_Flow_v6

I could probably contribute, if given some support on the existing architecture from existing developpers, but don't have much available time, so any help would be appreciated.

    I'd love to see this. I have a large number of mikrotik routers and keeping firewall rules tight between them is a bit of a chore.
