Potentially stupid question.  I was taking a look at 


and there was discussion there about how using raw squashfs doesn't
deal with wear leveling and bad flash blocks, and that openwrt is now
using ubifs for all targets with raw NAND flash --- and my
understanding is that the WNDR 3800 uses raw NAND flash.  Is there any
particular reason why Cerowrt isn't using ubifs, or squashfs over ubi,
other than purely historical and/or this wasn't the research focus of Cerowrt?
