Could you make a "fake" interface, an "option" in the lan/wan interface
set up?  Say "nul" or something?

The way the code is written right now, LAN and WAN have to be numbered
interfaces, which means that they can't be bridged to each other.  This 
is why bridging requires three network interfaces.

Changing this would require a non-trivial amount of work.
