I work with network allot and I always miss the bridging feature. Over a year ago I was a (So called advanced) Windows user, and I very often used the bridge function in the 'network manager'. Ubuntu is my favorite OS and I only use my Windows to run games, witch never happens ;).
My suggest is to make bridging tool in the network manager, or simply make a GUI for the bridge-utils, and make that gui default in the ubuntu dist.
Even more useful the other way around: I got a nokia N810 and no wireless at home... no problem, I tought, I just have to explain the laptop to "lend" it the wireless... Wrong! As far as I read setting up a bridging is beyoind my skills and perhaps tricky even for someone a lot better than me.
