You do, but deleting by rule number/s is the only way.  ipfw(8):

     ipfw [-q] {delete | zero | resetlog} [set] [number ...]

Of course Noah could find rule number/s to delete with something like

  # ipfw delete `ipfw list | grep $somestring | awk '{print $1}'`

if he was, um, courageous :)  Safer tested first with ipfw show ..

cheers, Ian
