Well, as I said, I don't think my customized version won't be of much  
help as I customized in the way I need it. I removed a lot(!!!) of  
stuff from the webif package. I also translated everything into  
german - so you would have to translate it back into german. And all  
I added to setup WiFiDog was the list of MAC addresses that are  
allowed to bypass the login screen. So basicly it's just a fifth the  
options webif provides and all of that reorganized in new categories.  
And as I only added one feature for WiFiDog that wouldn't be of any  
help to others.

Believe me, it's going to be faster do write it for yourself.

And if I would have added all the config settings of WiFiDog I'd  
allready have released it.

But what we as the developers could do is to decide to write an  
extension for webif. I cannot do it at the moment as I am working on  
the translation of WiFiDog and on implementing FCKEditor.

BTW: WiFiDof already "speaks" german for a week, but it still sounds  
not so german at a lot of places. But I'm doing well on converting a  
lot of strings into sprintf.

Cheers, Max!
