I'm thinking about building a "m0n0AP" type distro.  Something just for 
doing wireless access points.  I run a WISP and I'm using m0n0wall on 
my relays.  There are a lot of things that I would like to change.  So 
the best thing to do is build a whole new type of distro.  I like the 
m0n0wall interface, so it would be cool be able to keep it.

This is all just a thought right now.  But maybe I should start hacking 
on m0n0BSD.

One thing that is true.  The HostAP drivers are not very good.  Still 
lots of problems with them.
