If I see the analogy correctly, a "UFW-like frontend" already
is "included" with ipfw, i. e., ipfw works at a comparable
level. If you compare the ufw commands with the ipfw commands,
they are quite similar, so you'd use ipfw directly in the same
manner as you use ufw to interact with iptables.

As an equation:

	   ufw        ipfw
	---------- = ------
	 iptables     ipfw

More or less... ;-)

There are GUI tools like qtfw (qt-based) and freepfw (web-based)
to manage ipfw as well, if you need that feature.
