I did it, but...  The survey was a bit limiting.  For example, on the "Check 
3 important things" where was Captive Portal and RADIUS?  With all of the 
talk about Jonathan De Graeve's patches, I would think it's importance would 
be obvious.  Also, several questions that had absolute answers when mine was 
more ambivalent.  And the code submission questions left out the mane reason 
I have done no development, and it ain't language.  Frankly, there is no 
easy and well documented way to rip apart and recompress an image.  A 
windows based tool for this would open floodgates of development, in my 
opinion.  And this e-mail is addressing my last problem with the survey, a 
lack of a comments field. :-)

All gripes aside, m0n0wall is a fantastic tool.  I think the fact that it is 
so close to perfect is what drives everybody to push so hard.  If only you 
would implement "my request" it would be perfect. :-)
