a heartbeat? i don't see anything like that in the cvs version of
auth-lite. i didn't know i needed to emit one, is it a
connection-keepalive thing or a kind of presence notification?

part of our plan is to implement an auth mode in nocatsplash which can
behave this way, just send you straight through to a portal page.
the latest version does let you re-load the splash page from a given
URL on a schedule, which i think is enough, but i am getting there
faster with wifidog at the moment. 

Schuyler and Saul made an ipkg for our patched wifidog, that sends the
mac address as the default gw_id, and what you get on the auth/portal
server side is very much tied in to the node map / nodedb. 

i'd like to make some of those components useful to ISF at least
