Hi Andrew -
First off, you might take a look at http://www.netfilter.org/.
Secondly, I think you might find a web search using terms like "ipchains
upgrade iptables" useful.
Also, all of the various linux distributions run mailing lists which
appear to have addressed your concern at various points in time, so an
achive search would be an excellent use of your time.
Beyond that, ipchains and iptables do not use the same configuration
files, so you'd be stuck having to rewrite.
Generally, I'd look at this as a good opportunity to examine your
current configuration, and make sure that it still does what you
want it to do, since we all known that configs tend to get crufty
