* Unbridged interfaces - routing only
* Device Naming by function rather than type
* More open to ipv6 firewall
* Firewall using device pattern matching to avoid O(n) complexities in
firewall rules
* Babels on and preconfigured by default
* Oddball IP address range and /27 subnets
* Polipo Web proxy
* Samba by default
* Faster web server
* Weird port for the configuration web server
* Pre-enabled wifi and wifi mesh interfaces
* Huge amount of alternate qdiscs (like pie, ns2_codel, cake, cake2, etc)


A build that includes all these things by default.

I note there are a couple nice "super-duper" builders of openwrt that
have WAY more features that ever made it into cerowrt. Although I
forget their names, they have their advocates on the openwrt forums.
(and both include sqm)
I have long meant to eval those and maybe hope to convince them to be
the next buildmaster for this project - the day to day grind of doing
a build, testing it, etc, was killing me - and y'all. Much better to
have it get filtered through someone else.....

Let's make wifi fast, less jittery and reliable again!
