Yes, I could imagine that also, but in this setup, you've single point of
failure, right? If the AP which is running the Chilli instance goes down, then
you've a problem. What I would like to have instead, is Chilli running on all
the APs and share the client states between them, so if the user roams from
one Chilli instance to another one, he doesn't need to authenticate again.
