Hi Andrew, list,
I would love to see something like m0n0router on the rise :) .

That would be great if quagga could be implemented in something like  
the m0n0wall. This would open up a whole new world to m0n0wall. I  
think it would also complement nicely to the firewall functions, if  
you need them.

Add CARP to the wish-list and you have a redundant firewall/router  
based on m0n0wall in your network. With this I'm sure m0n0wall could  
make some way in the enterprise environment.

I'm not an active developer, but if m0n0wall is going that way, I  
might become an interested contributor.

Kind regards,
