You can disable rules by editing them and selecting the "Disable this
rule" checkbox.  Yes, a "disable" button would be nice, tho.

If you have a look at the "Rules" page, you will see a "+" sign beside
each rule.  This "+" sign lets you add a rule immediately after the
particular rule - if you have 5 existing rules and click the "+" beside
the 2nd rule, a new rule is inserted between the original rule 2 and
original rule 3.  If you need to insert a new "first rule", then all you
need to do is move the new rule you added under the existing rule 1 up a
single place - this will place limited load on your floppy drive - a
single rule addition followed by a single rule move.
