Some optimizations might help a bit, but I think you are correct here.
It is a good thing that hardware improves over time as well. :)

The fragments issues looks to be resolved, but needs some testing to be
sure. And wasn't there a report of odd captive portal behavior? Which
all brings us to the next point...

The bugs that are known, and repeatable. Allong with the very small
number of additional features, I think we need a lot of testing in
different environments. Something I will be looking at in a few
production locations with the next beta release. After all, only users
can really break things. :)
