I don't want to break any licenses, I just would rather use m0n0wall than
PIX! :)

I'm not overly familiar with the internals of m0n0, i thought i'd ask before
i started breaking things!

It's not necessary to remove all mentions of m0n0, just the obvious bits...

I'm not planning to 'fork', rather to merely change some strings and logos
of each release before I pass them on to our customers!

It does feel a little weird to do such things to someone else's work... But
otherwise I'd have to use PIX or Netscreen! :\
