Like a lot of home-built FLOSS, I doubt this person has any such lofty

Though if random householders are going to venture into networking,
usable *and* robust tools are needed. I suspect this will still be
largely restricted to those with more than a modicum of Linux/Unixen
know-how: especially as the command prompt is apt to scare many/most
GUI-tethered technophiles.

[I tend to think of this kind of distro to be more like iphone apps than
os replacements per se ...]
