	Great ;-). Things are looking up.

	I guess that for now we could contend with an INSTALL.openwrt
file. Most people should be proficient enough if they seriously plan
on running wifidog on a WRT54G. Also, the hardware platform is "stable"
enough that we could cut a corner and release a static binary ;-).

	Heh, a linux thing I think. Also technically, it could call
fw_destroy 3 or more times. I don't think it matters much. We could use
a mutex and have the signal handler try it and return if the try is
unsuccessful. That would guarantee only one handler being run.

	Cool. All the changes since our phone call are features that have
been added but not core functionalities.
