Fair enough.  That's important.

I wouldn't bother much with that.  The promise of fq_codel is that we
can get rid of our prioritising hacks -- if we need that kind of
features, then fq_codel has failed.

I wouldn't bother with that either.  120 Mbit/s is the highest rate you
can get in Europe as far as I can tell, so being able to push 80 Mbit/s
on a four year old router is fine (as long as you're careful to avoid
shaping traffic between LAN and WLAN -- I certainly wouldn't want
backing up my laptop to be capped at 80 Mbit/s).

What are they using?

Remove the non-default features.  Be a man, Dave, dump it all.

They won't.  If you want to have an effect on the world, you need to
push it into the default OpenWRT scripts.
