G'day Coni,

I agree - we should look at UPnP for every version and decide AGAINST it.  UPnP has *no* place on an
edge nor security device.  No place at all.  It is a security vulnerability lying in wait to be
compromised.  It is dangerous and in no way should ever be implemented on m0n0wall.  I want a
security device that *I* control, not that malware controls, thanks all the same.
