  I haven't heard of any substantial movement on torouter in maybe a year
or so.  Some assume that development was ongoing because the idea of
torouter is so appealing, but from a developer perspective, that is not the
best place to be.

  I only sort-of agree. Installing/updating with opkg is problematic for
the reasons you mention, but I work on an OpenWRT-based project, and we
manually install/update rather than use opkg.  (But we're also working with
a model where people may not have realistic internet access). [1]
