As someone who has been known to provide a significant amount of
documentation for various Open Source projects in the past, let me say
that additional documentation for a project with seriously limited
existing documentation is always a good thing.

When I get a chance to play with m0n0wall a little more, I will be more
than willing to also help out in this area.  (Off to read your doc...)

Viva Open Source!
