  A revamp of Handbook's 'firewalls' chapter.
  This is a rather lengthy patch, that attempts to fix several problems:
  - Reduce repetition. There are several paragraphs in the original text that are repeated throughout the sections
  - Markup fixes. Replace single quotes with <literal> tags, add <acronym>s and several other changes to improve markup consistency
  - Convert to passive voice where possible, eliminate few first person references
  - Several grammar and language fixes
  - The original text implied that the same TCP packet would go back and forth between source and destination.  Rephrase relevant paragraphs to clarify these are different packets
  - Includes many fixes submitted in a PR [1] and a link fix submitted on -doc [2]
  - Numerous other smaller changes, too many to mention here
