The "cool factor" of porting FreeBSD to the WRT54G cannot be underestimated, 
but Linux ports were enormously helped by the opening of the sources of the 
Linksys Linux port (which is absent for FreeBSD) and the big number of 
willing developpers (just have a look at the *number* of different Linux 
ports to the WRT).

The latest 6.0 release would be an excellent target, with its brand-new 
support for WPA and virtual APs ... who volunteers ?
