Hobby horse: please make sure it support bridge mode?  Those of us who
want to put our own routers on the wire will hate you otherwise.

Why? As long as it can be a transparent router, why would it need to be
a bridge?

I must be having a senior moment, but what in the world is a "transparent
router" and how is it different from running in bridged mode?  (Note that if if
it's transmogrifying the packets in some way, it's not really transparent, and
if it's not, it's basically bridging...)
