Adding a bunch of subnets isn't going to keep people from exhausting
available bandwidth.  It would provide a primitive means of keeping
users from accessing other wireless users.

If you need this sort of functionality in your access point, you're
going to have to go with a commercial solution.  For example, Cisco
AP's would allow you to map SSID's to VLAN's, which you could then set
up an OPT interface on m0n0wall with VLAN's to control what each VLAN
could get to.
