That sounds really interesting to me.
I have to check if the dates collide with some other appointment. I'm
going to the WBM and afterwards we `might` organize a hackathon for the
LibreRouter project  somewhere in Europe. Maybe we could find some
kind of collaboration/relationship between LibreRouter and your
proposal. If we had the prototypes for that dates we might test some of
them in your network. That would help us to debug and see how it works
in a real environment.
But still is too early for knowing the details so we can keep in touch
the next weeks to see if it fits.
In any case I'm personally interested on your proposal.
PS: please consider this just as an initial idea, I've not spoken `yet`
with the LibreRouter team.
