I can't seem to figure out how to set up asymmetric firewall rules.  Is it
possible?  If not, can it be added?

Why?  Well, for wireless lans the wireless portion is half-duplex (all
radios are on the same channel and only 1 can transmit at a time) so it is
highly desirable to set higher bandwidth out from the AP and lower bandwidth
back in from the client radios.

Firewall rules have always been black magic to me. :-)
