Glad you likes :-)

I thought of that too until I realised that you can select multiple
rows at once. What happens when one of them is enabled and the others
are disabled?

This can of course be handled by going through the selection and do
the following:

- grey out both buttons when no rule is selected
- grey out the enable button when *all* selected rules are enabled
- grey out the disable button when *all* selected rules are disabled
- leave both buttons active if there is a mix of disabled and enabled

How does that sound?

At the moment it is not possible to enable/disable a block of protocols
at the same time. This is not much of a problem because they are not
grouped logically. Coloring rules can be grouped logically and therefore
it is nice to be able to enable/disable a block at once.

I do like the idea of uniformity though, so if it is possible to
have a selection of multiple rows and it is possible to show the
filter-colors in the list, just as is done now, I like the idea.

I need to look into this, as I'm not a very experienced GTK coder...

Thank you both for your feedback :-)
