Yep, am aware of that possibility, and the setup fun that would entail. :)

That’s why in the end I think it’s good that the paper makes it clear that the target is home gateways (it’s right in the title). It was designed and implemented with that and mind, and if it were advertised for another purpose without more work, the paper might start to get that “it slices, it dices” feel… :)
