It's simple: as long as the box to the right on
http://www.freebsd.org still says "Production Release: 4.x", I don't
think we'll switch. I've burned my fingers with 5.x before, and I'm
simply not convinced that it's as reliable as 4.x yet.
Besides, there's not so much more hardware support in 5.x anyway
(agreed, ath(4) would be nice) - for example, AFAIR the USB 802.11g
support mentioned is not part of FreeBSD 5, but a separate
independent project - too much of those, and the m0n0wall kernel (and
userland) ends up being a patchwork. I'd prefer to use only what The
FreeBSD Project offers in terms of kernel drivers...
