I would say that it would be desireable to have a device that is available 
world-wide, that doesn't have a lot of different versions of the hardware 
that are different.

I also think that it'll be very hard to find a box that is decently priced 
that also will do gig speeds *and* will do AQM, since most home gateways 
that are this quick has hardware acceleration that in turn requires vendor 
proprietary kernels to drive the hardware.

So if you want to fulfil both, I think we need two platforms. A CPU based 
platform that is quick enough to do AQM in and CPU forwarding in gig 
speeds will most likely have to be Intel based and cost 300 USD or more.

I would be happen to be wrong on the last point though...
