How do you think, is it complex to implement WPA-based authentication
using the Radius server proxying techique (like ChilliSpot)?

This can be done the following way: Radius Proxy listens for requests
and forwards them to the real Radius server. When it sees successful
radius response, it contacts the Authentication server, retrieves the
token from it and records successfull authentication (enabling the
firewall rules).

In that case, WPA on the access points is configured to authenticate
against the Radius server and access points are configured to use this
Radius proxy instead of real Radius server.
