Definitely! However, it might be good to wait with actual work on the
code until the results of my diploma thesis are available (will be
finished by the end of May) - the task list includes a refactoring of
the core from the proof-of-concept implementation, so there might be
some major changes. We (my colleague and I) wanted to re-implement
much of the current functionality under the new architecture, but
that didn't entail enough "research", so we're going to do something
a bit different than m0n0wall, but hopefully still very useful in the
end. :)

At this point, we're especially looking for further ideas on the
architecture and the implementation of the web interface that we can
elaborate in the thesis (programming language etc. - we just used PHP
for the prototype because it was an easy choice).
I guess I should translate the most important points from the term
paper into English...
