 Subject:  IPSEC and DHCP WAN interface

I am very new to IPSEC and I was wondering why m0n0wall requires a 
static IP on the WAN interface for IPSEC.  Is this a limitation on the 
protocol, FreeBSD or m0n0wall?  Is it because the keys will have to 
re-generated when the DHCP address changes?  The reason I ask is, my 
DHCP address has not changed in ages.

Also, what about using IPSEC over the WLAN interface?  I understand 
that pb11 has made it possible for WLAN to be used as the WAN interface 
however it would be nice if the WLAN interface could be used as one of 
the "optional" interfaces and still be able to do IPSEC.
