Wordup All,

So I REALLY dig the idea of a NYC*BUG distributed SoHo router image,

After investigating more yesterday, it's REALLY noteworthy to check out 
how the m0n0wall folks distribute install media- really 
straightforeword.  I'd love to see this go in that direction, but 
OpenBSD/PF based, and perhaps not *soo* focused on a html gui- (but 
that could be a cool side-project for later!)

Shall we rock this?
