I'm all for this! The stock sveasoft firmware includes most of the
foundation for doing measurement. All we need to do is to compile a
binary version of the test application and give the user instructions on
how to install it onto the device.

Can I also propose a parallel approach as well.  Can we also do a
modified version of Monowall since this can be deployes to a large
number of different hardware and medias, including Soekris, WRAP,
standard pc's using USB-sticks and cd-roms.
