Right.  You have to run it once to get the rules.  After that, you can 
do whatever you need to do to disable the rules.  You don't need to 
worry about your changes being overwritten by sa-update because if 
you're not using the rules, there's no point in updating them, so just 
make sure sa-update doesn't run again.
