That's a bit of a false dichotomy.  The wifidog auth server can send users to a 
custom URL (drupal or otherwise) NOW.

It has all the infrastructure in place to sent location ans user specific 
variables already in place (as used in the SmartyTemplate) content type, it 
would be trivial to extend the node redirection code tu use it to allow 
crafting URLs automatically, should someone have a CMS that can utilise such 

The wifidog auth server's Content manager was designed to manage highly 
localized, highly granular content elements in complex display scenarios.  Few 
groups actually decided to go in that direction.

It's pretty obvious that many groups see their portals as either one website 
per hostpot (supported now by custom portal URLs, and easy to improve upon) or 
as a single website with the occasional location-specific content element (for 
which the current Content Manager is overdesigned, but there is no easy 'in 
between" solution that doesn't involve everyone coding a custom portal.
