I see two components: a layout editor allows a user to drag 'n drop elements
visual layout with ability to define what object an element references, and
object editors for each content type (eg: FCK editor for HTML, image
applet embedding, links to other CMS pages, etc.).  

The layout editor should let the user manipulate many pages for a node with
a bare minimum 
of two predefined page names: login and welcome.  

The code I worked on wasn't for WifiDog and wasn't completed.  It would
generate CSS
on the fly to handle positioning and style, while the content was
generated from the node's list of content objects.   I have no specific
preference to
using an editor to modify Smarty templates or having it work on the database

That's all I can think of right now.
