Yes, that could be added. But not as rapturetime==0, since 0 already
has a special meaning: "ignore this variable and use the ruleset
instead". Only if rapturedelay is > 0 it is used. But the feature
you described could of couse be implemented as rapturetime==-1. Since
I set the maximum to 999, it already includes a "rapture off".
This workaround will become obsolete as soon as someone unifies server
variables and rulesets. But this would cost more time that I can afford
