But isn't that where pfsence is supposed to be? There are already several
custom options, like SMP support, or 50 pptp connections. Beyond that,
shouldn't we be looking at a different platform perspective? I think the
only reason people are trying to push m0n0wall into the pfsence space is
because m0n0wall is so stable and mature. We don't want to loose that.
Instead we should help pfsence mature to the stability of m0n0wall.
