In my case I am running a (slightly modified) wifidog server with a
custom portal. Being able to choose between different portals is very
useful; I do not think it is possible to have a single portal
implementation that suits everyone's needs and not have it end up being
overly complex and hard to use.

There is an important related question: do you consider the current
wifidog and portal to be tied together and form a single product, or do
you consider them to be separate things and encourage development of
other portals using the wifidog server?
