 +there are two easily accessible spare gpios. Gpio13 is the RX pin on the serial header (so you can't use it at the same time as the serial port obviously), and gpio0 is at the bottom left of the board, where there are pads for a fourth LED which has not been soldered in.
 +The author of the first link above reported that gpio13 would only work as an output, not as an input. I did not have that problem.

 +Note that, at least for 12.09, switch support seems to have issues: switch configuration changes don't "​take"​ until a reboot, and when configuring tagged and untagged VLANs, outgoing traffic for the untagged VLAN is still tagged. This needs to be further investigated. 
 +If you don't need the switch, consider swapping the WAN and LAN ports as eth1 is directly connected.
