I noticed that the current beta GUI has limited support for the Atheros
driver. Closer inspection shows that the FreeBSD v5.3 version of the Atheros
driver has a lot less options that the current driver [1]. Sam seems to have
checked in a significant number of changes since the FreeBSD 5.3 release.

Running "sysctl hw.ath" and "sysctl dev.ath" shows the options available in
the current driver (using exec.php). Will the latest driver only be included 
monowall starts to use FreeBSD v5.4? [3]

I'd been keen to be able to use monowall on point-to-point outdoor links, so
would like to be able to set the regulatory domain, ACK timeouts, antenna
diversity etc. Given the huge number of possible options to configure, is it
possible to configure arbitrary sysctl's using the GUI in the current
monowall? (I see the following [2] shows how to edit a config file).
