I'm worried that not enough ISF-ers are getting this information of
where our tool fits in the big picture and our opportunities to work
with other groups.

For my part, I can help somebody integrate WiFiDog with CUWiN.  There is

I think it will be easy except for customizing WiFiDog to use IP Filter.
If WiFiDog works with pf already, I am more than happy to switch.
