Greg, as Johannes noted otus has lacked focus as Johannes whipped out
a port for it in a few weeks and then Christian gave it some final
love taps for inclusion, we just still use otus as just a source of
documentation for any yet missing feature, but for that I guess I can
just refer people to my git tree. Chris would know better where we're
at as far as feature-parity is concerned though so I'll leave it up to
him to judge whether or not having otus gets some users anything
ar9170 doesn't yet have.
