it would also make it faster for the updates as well as retaining the existing 
enabled/disabled rules in the ET files... if PP is marking each individual ET 
rule as disabled, that loses the existing configuration and it will be very hard 
for the user to return to using the ET rules in at least their default as 
distributed condition...
