I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, but you could check into
Filter Language Compiler, by Darren Reed of ipfilter fame (or infamy
depending on how you look at it).  Looks interesting, but I'm not sure if
it would decrease your admin efforts unless you're pushing the same policy
throughout your network's edge devices.

One of FLC's biggest features is it's ability to work with the various
UNIX packet filters, as well as Cisco ACL's.
