Chris,

what do you mean by "NAT port bouncing" ?

Beside that, I cannot agree with the rest of your statement.
I know quite few guys running m0n0wall professionally and not only for the captive-portal.
Ask Manuel, he can for sure give you some references.

Although I do not program for m0n0wall I can fully understand that not every need/wish can be
fulfilled.
On one hand it has been deliberately chosen not to fork between embedded and PC, although the
requirements are different.
On the other hand it is a community based development so believe me if a feature is requested by the
mass it will also probably be implemented.
Of course I'm talking about firewall features and not services like print-server, anti-virus,
proxy/cache which are not directly firewall related.
