As I said on IRC, I'll be glad to help you, but I already wrote a nearly full 
design document 
(http://dev.wifidog.org/wiki/doc/developer/TokenArchitecture).  I'm affraid I 
simply don't have the time to help you without more specific questions.

I fully realize that getting familiar with the codebase is a large and 
time-consuming undertaking, but I don't really see how I can help you, short 
of spending a few weeks writing more documentation.  I've already written a 
lot of the documentation currently available, and at this point I think it's 
best for the community that I spend most of my available volunteer time doing  
coding, helping new developers and integrating their patches. 

But as always, I WILL make time to answer specific questions, especially if 
you are willing to collect and write down part of the answers (as code 
comments or wiki pages)
