N95 as Wifi Access Point?

Ignoring battery drain...

If someone made an app to do this, is their any reason why you couldnt set the N95 up to use its HSDPA connection to create a WiFi access point?

Would be useful when away and wanting to share HSDPA with more than one PC

I've not seen anything that does it purely on the phone, but in theory it would be fairly easy to use either Internet Connection Sharing in Windows or Internet sharing on OS X to share the connection from your N95 coming into the computer over bluetooth out via the machine's WiFi interface to another machine.

I know that's not exactly what you want but I'm not even sure if the N95s CPU would have the power to do the Network Address Translation/Routing, Encryption and act as a phone at the same time.
