software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

An --enable-component option already exists.
Please add a respective --disable-component option.

So that I may do;
software-properties-gtk --disable-component=multiverse
software-properties-gtk --disable-component=restricted

FYI: Are you aware that add-apt-repository has an option to do that? You can simply 'add-apt-repository multiverse' to enable multiverse and 'add-apt-repository -r multiverse' to disable multiverse. Actually that has been added because on servers people did not want to pull in the gtk version of software properties, but only to have a CLI interface to do that. In this context, it would even make sense to remove the --enable-component and --enable-ppa options from software-properties-gtk, as that's what add-apt-repository stands for.

Thank you!
I was not aware of the 'add-apt-repository' command or its -r option.

Yeah, in that case I think that --disable-component should be added or that --enable-component should be removed, so that it is consistent and predictable.
