I've been using tagged and untagged switch ports on the 3800 for a few years now
(I use them for the Scale conference and we have a rather complex wired
infrastructure), the only problem I ran into was the issue of the ports being
numbered backwards on the outside of the box.
For the conference, I use one port on the switch as my WAN port (trunked) and
then configure the other three ports to specific VLANs. I configure the 'wan'
port to be trunked as well, but generally only end up using it to daisy-chain
another AP off of.
