I would hype the heck out of a router-style carrier board.  I'd even buy a
bunch myself, for that matter. I used to make good money by putting OpenWRT
on cheap routers for small businesses.

I've had good success chatting with Eben about Hackaday articles. If this
were to become more than a pipe dream, we could reach out to him, to see if
the Pi Foundation had any interest in backing a Pi router carrier board
that beats bufferbloat.
