“openness” is great and all but if I am to share my internets with strange unknown persons I will want to prevent them visiting unsavory sites on MY connection.  (Yes, I have read footnote number one in the EFF article.)

  • no “adult” sites
  • no eye patch sites
  • nothing that would earn me a visit from the FBI

What open garden has no plans to incorporate RADIUS? Hosted style as in dd-wrt?

And yes it requires root but wait..  tutorials and videos for adding root permissions [SuperOneClick] is conveniently provided for windoze users.  Rooting still requires windoze piracy in VM… unless you want to buy a windows license to run in vm on *nix for a one time use.  Also a video on using z4root

EFF footnote two pitches a disturbing use of geoiplocation!  Now more than ever ISPs should offer opt-out from netblocks with fine grained geo location information.
