Boy, those words sure got my excitement level raised!!

Maybe if we could write our own firmware, we could adapt the technique 
regarding the "distributed" versus "short" interframe spaces put forth 
in the AT&T paper that would allow for Infrastructure mode connections 
to be solidly done from >~6000' from the access point. . .

I'm all for it; hope it might be possible.
