jhendryUK changed Difficulty level from Easy (less than an hour) to Normal (likely a few hours).

I wonder if we can even extend groups even further into the NAT rules as well.

Further, I think it'd be good if we can specify multiple inbound-interfaces in wan load-balancing - for example, for exclude lines where we'd like to exclude addresses from wan load-balancing for multiple VLANs.

Multiple inbound-interfaces was going to be the next task I raised for wan load-balancing :). We should probably change the name of the option to something more descriptive of what it does. exclude-traffic-from-interfaces or similar.

Another interesting option is glob matches, iptables allows you to specify a + at the end of the interface name. Lets also allow for that so w can exclude ipsec/openvpn etc etc... tunnels in a single command
