yeah but you don't have to have inbound ports open for BT to work.  It
helps things, but isn't required.

yeah, I don't see something of that nature getting added to m0n0wall.  

What the last poster suggested, when something hits a certain port,
open up something based on some rules you've predefined, is more sane.
 I don't see that happening either though because of the way it'd have
to be hacked in to work.  Basically it'd be an ugly mess, for
something that practically nobody wants or needs.
