 yehyeh - they're not designed for server-level applications, which is
great... because EOMA68 is not designed for server-level applications
either :)

 honestly the router market being so saturated and also
low-cost-focussed (and specialist) i can't really imagine there being
even a *need* for a standards-driven design.

 i am however going to be doing an EOMA68 router again: it will be
using the QCA9531.  i'll start a new thread about this.
