Description of problem:

Using system-config-securitylevel-tui and selecting to allow incoming
on WWW (HTTP) ends up with both 80:tcp and 443:tcp being written to
/etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel and then put into iptables.

The next time system-config-securitylevel-tui is run, https:tcp is
listed under "other ports".  Removing https:tcp, while keeping WWW
(HTTP), doesn't change anything because 443:tcp keeps getting written
back to /etc/sysconfig/system-config-securitylevel as long as WWW has
been selected.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. system-config-securitylevel-tui
2. enable -> customize -> WWW (HTTP) -> OK -> OK
3. system-config-securitylevel-tui
4. customize, "https:tcp" is now under Other ports.
5. erase "https:tcp" -> OK -> OK
6. GOTO 3

If this was a conscious design decision, then it would look less
clumsy by using something like "WWW (HTTP/HTTPS)" instead.

Fixed in Rawhide by splitting HTTPS out into a separate option from HTTP.
