I think you read too much into my willingness to take on another
hardware project to leave 1/finished.  ;-)

Indeed, if folks are interested in hacking WRT56GL devices, (no
802.11n, no USB) my old serial port conversion would probably still
work.  We can add two rs232 ports, hack in an SD card for extra
storage, and do another batch of my circuit boards for it all in
relatively short order.  Just another option.  But y'all are excited
about some of the new stuff, and faster / bigger / stronger plus USB
and perhaps miniPCI is a powerful force...
