So the saga continues...

I've decided to replace my funky routing with an OpenWRT solution, and  
I think I want to use a WRT54G from Linksys as my router.

The only question is:  Which one?

It appears that there are several (a dozen or so) versions of this  
router that work with OpenWRT (and a handful more that don't work with  

I know that recently Linksys began selling the WRT54GL, which is  
supposed to be intended for this use - but I thought I read somewhere  
that the old 2 or 2.2 series was better for some reason.

Based on what I find here [1], they appear to be very similar.
