Lets start with SMP.  m0n0wall does not support this.  However, a few people 
have built custom images to make it work.  Michael Iedema even has a 
tutorial, so this can be done.

State table is limited to 30,000 states.  Again, this can be changed at a 
cost of memory.  However, it will have to be done.  If there is any way, you 
may want to consider distributed gateways to a central RADIUS server.  With 
this, you are using a proven system that works, as opposed to a custom 
solution that "should" work.

However, funding Jonathan is a good idea regardless. :-)
