I need out filter desperatly !!! 
People who not understand 'in' or 'out' probably don't understand

In every firewall router has filters for 'in' and 'out' packet.. This is
basic for any firewall

Because you never need 'out' rules, and only having one direction makes
things a whole lot easier to understand for most people.

You can see them in status.php, but it would be nice to be able to have
a checkbox to allow you to edit some of the rules (like the PPTP server
rule that permits anything to TCP 1723 and similar for IPsec).
