I understand that openwrt is a wonk box, but still if there isn't default configuration that would make it truly plug and play for most situations, that sounds really problematic.

I think it can be, but the openwrt work never went that far.  We’re working on it again now, but even if we get it working nicely in openwrt, that doesn’t get it to where I can assume it will be working on some arbitrary home network anytime in the next five years.
