Well, all I can say is I have no idea why I put this off.

It took me all of about two minutes to flash a sysupgrade image from
ddwrt over ssh, a few minutes to set it up for switch+wlan, and just a
few minutes more to bridge my FIOS router and use openwrt as my
gateway.  i configured it to register dynamic DNS with namecheap
easily enough and have all my firewall rules configured.

I'll look into things like VPN another day, but I have to say that
installing modules on openwrt is an absolute breeze.

You said that firmware updates are typically easy to do, and don't
require reconfiguration?
