Indeed this could be implemented in hostapd but is not OS independent 
and has been
discussed / rejected on this list in the past.

a kernel module / netfilter plug in is more efficient than a 
hook/tun/tap/.... more work but
the right thing todo ...

ill be posting this once its polished off a bit the motivation is to get 
the support i need
into hostapd expect a patch for this soon.

Thank you for the feedback anyone that has questions suggestions is 
welcome to contact me.

dont tell the girlfriend but we over at the inlaws for easter and having 
a "project" to work on is cheaper than
psychological assistance or drugs :D .
