UFW does not support GUFW names from terminal

Bug Description

The only option to label additions to ufw is comment:

~ $ sudo ufw allow 80 comment 'example'

if a user opens up gufx they will see:

No Rule Name
1 80 ALLOW IN Anywhere # example

Notice this adds the common '#' to comment out the text we added after 'coment' in our command, but when oppened in GUFW, it does not read this comment as the name.

As part of this feature request I would like to have either:
1) A command-line option to add a name in UFW
2) GUFW to store and read the Name Column in the same way UFW adds comments

I suggest gufw store what it uses for 'Name' in the comment in some manner. Note to gufw developers, under the hood the comment is hex encoded (see hex_encode()/hex_decode() from src/util.py in the ufw sources if needed).
