ufw 0.19 introduced port ranges, but the version currently in Intrepid
is 0.21. 0.20 and later require iptables >= 1.4.0, which is not
available in 8.04 LTS. At some point, I hope to provide iptables 1.4 and
a newer version of ufw in hardy-backports or a PPA, but I haven't had
time to do that yet. I'd be happy to review updated ufw and iptables
packages and get them uploaded for -backports if someone provides them.

An alternative would be to install and use 0.19[1] on hardy (it works just
fine on 8.04 LTS). This is of course not officially supported, but
neither would using -backports.
