however, by abstracting away the webGUI, it would allow for GUI 
configuration to run on a separate host from the m0n0wall, if so desired. 
this also opens possibilities of extending to multi-m0n0wall configuration 
management, i.e. the ability to push a config change across the network to 
many m0n0walls. another way of looking at this would be centralized 
management of m0n0wall configurations.
