I would love to, but I'm running up against a lack of documentation. 
The firewall module documentation merely says that the settings are 
stored in "a file" but doesn't deign to tell you where the file is.

I'll keep struggling, but as soon as I manage to break back in I'll 
certainly be deleting webmin.
