Related thought: Some consumer grade routers have the WiFi key and admin 
password in part of the flash that OpenWrt doesn't write over. It would 
be nice to be able to include those as defaults, if possible. Then the 
password(s) would be as written on the bottom of the device after a 
settings reset.
