Yep, I can agree on that. I 've got locations running on m0n0wall (with
wrt54GL , dd-wrt, configured as standalone AP's)
and others running only on WRT54GL's with dd-wrt firmware and chillispot.
With m0n0 you 'll get all the information you would ever need to find a
problem cause. Also it's easy to disconnect CP users.
WRT54GL with dd-wrt is a very nice and cheap solution, but it has quite a
few disadvantages compared to m0n0wall.
I also don't use WDS, all ap's have the same ssid and are on different
channels, as far away from each other as possible.
I have no problems, except from a not-self-cleaning steal session on the
radius from time to time.

Kind regards,
