    What I'd *REALLY* like to propose is creating a universal replacement for the tomato-RT tree (so there's once again a consistent TomatoUSB "base"), but short of that probably-unrealizable goal...

    - Consider adding in the patch for iptext in iptables to ip6tables
    - Consider reducing the nice value on smbd, minidlna, etc. from 19 to 1. User-added daemons that should be at ultra-low priority (to avoid disrupting things like smbd and mindlna ;) can't help but stomp on them right now, because there's no way to set anything lower than 19. A change to 1 will prevent that sort of unavoidable conflict.

    After further reflection, I'd set nice to 10 instead of 1. This way, users have the flexibility to slot their apps either "ahead of" or "behind" it with custom nice values, while still achieving the original goal of keeping high-impact low-criticality services "out of the way" of Tomato's normal routing duties.
