Yep, but it isn't going to be pretty with m0n0wall since you don't
have enough interfaces for its purposes.

Here's what I'd try.  Leave either the WAN or the LAN interface
assigned to one of the wireless cards.  Download the config.xml (via
backup) and remove the IP address, leave it blank (no IP).  Then put
in the sysctl to bridge the interfaces appropriately in <shellcmd>
tags.  i.e. <shellcmd>sysctl net.link.ether.bridge_cfg=sis0 ath0
ath1</shellcmd>  (see the FAQ on hidden config.xml options)   Save
your changes and use restore to load your modified configuration.

That should do the trick, though it's quite a hack.
