I second that...

The simple but still advanced aprx software is the advantage of this  
package. I would also prefer that aprx still being developed so that  
it is an IGATE and digipeater. Other "non igate/digi" features  
should/could then be accessible by scripting. Making more advanced  
IGATE/digi functions and keep the software small so that it fits in  
i.e Linksys routers etc.

You can always parse the log files from aprx to get information to a  
webserver.
