    Implement disable/enable for Port Forwarding rules?

    Would it be feasible to implement Enable/Disable for each existing Port-Forwarding rule? I recently discovered by chance that I had many undesired rules towards my NAS. Probably my mistake enabling UPNP sometime. But I could not distinguish between my own rules and the UPNP created rules and...
