I think we can (if it's not already preventing it) add a command
on .postrm that disables it on ufw. At the end this files are just for
declaring profiles, not enabling or open any port, they just describe a
service ports so the user doesn't need to care about them just enable
that service on ufw. So we don't need to care about those files opening
any port, but for disabling them on ufw after removing.
