I disagree.  If you need upnp to configure your firewall you have 
already lost.

Honestly I think a home user would be better off without it.  How many 
home users do the zombie "Accept and Install" now when they get pop-ups?

Dumbing down m0n0wall to that degree only makes it look dumb.

There are other deficiencies in M0n0wall that need more attention...
