chance of it working with minimum user configuration".

Why wouldn't you just attach the second device via a LAN (versus the WAN)
port, and disabling it's DHCP/SLAAC?  Or use a proper L2-only wireless
device like a range extender or an AP?  If Joe Sixpack can't handle that, he
probably is going to fail at getting OpenWRT to work, or configuring static
IPv6 routes, or modifying windows firewall to allow his other subnets
