Some time ago, someone else asked this question before...
Back then the answer was no... UPNP is a possible security issue, when 
misused by one of your local applications... and when using monowall, 
you know what you are doing, in so - you'd have to open ports yourself - 
which I greatly appreciate.

At the office, we disable every (commercial) router/firewall their UPNP 
option, that gets installed by customers... we simply don't like 
automatic opening of ports...

If you really want upnp, you should consider pfsense (although I don't 
use it, I see the option in my status list - which obviously tells me 
that it is disabled - I guess there is somewhere in the GUI an option to 
enable it in pfSense).
