Native NATM support would be nice, because it lets FreeBSD be used as a 
direct ADSL endpoint without an external ADSL router.

I have a pair of ATM25 cards, an ATM25 crossover, and an ATM25-to-ADSL 
G.DMT modem bagged up ready to ship to someone who has the time and 
motivation to work on NATM.

Also: I did have an ATM25 capable switch which I left at ICSI in 
Berkeley, I don't know where it is at the moment due to people movements.
