Most likely not in the next release of Owl, although that depends on
when we actually make it and the state of 2.4.x kernels by that time.

Currently, I am unsatisfied with 2.4.x.  I'd complain that 2.4.21
isn't coming out for months when there're publicly-known security
holes in 2.4.20, but some final fixes are simply not yet available,
not even in 2.4.21-pre's. :-(

Yet there's nothing which stops you from using Linux 2.4.x with Owl
already now, or with the 1.0 release.

I have no idea of what you mean by "Database/Firewall".

To use Linux 2.4.x with current Owl?  No.  You just do, and it works.
