One item that has been very nice about the 3800 is the unbricking is so 
bulletproof. this looks like it has a similar capability.

also, the amazon review talks about it having a Freescale P1014 cpu

If the openwrt folks could figure out how they are going to deal with NAND 
flash, it would be nice to be able to use one of the many routers that is 
shipping with more flash (128M in the newer netgear routers would be nice)

if I were to get my hands on one, what sort of testing would you want to do to 
it to tell if it looks like it would hold up?
