I don't know if it is patented, perhaps, but as I meant to send to the
list (but only ended up replying to sai), I have a Sonicwall pro 4060
that has this capability, and I'm pretty sure the Wayport system that a
lot of hotels use for wireless access also has this capability.

Even though the 4060 has this capability, I don't use it in my public
wireless areas, as nearly all people have their wireless configured for
DHCP anyway, not to mention I'm a bit hesitant to turn something on that
essentially breaks all the rules of sane IP networking :)

ah, browser proxy configuration is yet another piece of the puzzle. 
This gets more and more difficult.

But given that it's patented, we probably can't implement it without
getting a nice letter from Nomadix's lawyers.  Not sure how that would
affect the project since the main server is in .ch, IANAL. 
Regardless, doesn't sound like a good idea to implement something
that's patented.
