Do these require a re-DHCP after authenticating?  If not, they could
work transparently using dispatcher scripts, or a program listening on
D-Bus for new network connections to known SSIDs, then performing the
auto-login with stored credentials.  This has already been proven to
work for various AT&T wifi hotspots, there are some links around for it.
