That is correct.  Some people have done some things with static routes and I 
have looked at using metrics, but nothing good yet.  However, 
http://www.pfsense.com/ is a code fork of m0n0.  It was a friendly divorce, 
and we both share custody of the kids...  It is kind of a beefier m0n0. 
However, it is geared towards bigger hardware, and actual hard drives.
