I'd like to remember that you could also do the same by using iptables and the
netfilter hook in the bridge code (look for netfilter_bridge). It would allow
you to apply shaping/firewalling rules directly onto a bridge, without
transforming each and every AP in a Layer 3 Gateway.
I think this would also fit a Layer2 mesh network better.
