I think it is realistic.

How was that chinese proverb?
   "Don't tell it can't be done, to people doing so" ??

In Europe there is AVM  ( http://www.avm.de ) One of there products
is http://www.avm.de/en/Produkte/FRITZBox/FRITZ_Box_Fon_WLAN_7270/index.php

For "aftermarket firmware" there is http://www.freetz.org

My last attempt on freetzbox is about a year old. It failed for me
not being able to "flash the device".  From http://freetz.org/timeline
I do understand that the freetz project is alive.
