TrustedMACList on auth server

Description

Is it possible to consider moving the TrustedMACList to the wifidog server, or possibly having it on both server and client?

Logically, the server is the authenticater, and should it not authenticate mac and/or user name and password?

I have coded scripts to configure our nodes before they go into the field. As I add the code to implement wifidog into our remote nodes, I see/believe the TrustedMACList is going to be very long. In addition we have to update the TrustedMACList in an existing node before we can add a new node that routes through the existing node.

I suspect in all cases, the wifidog server is a computer that is much more capable of dealing with a long list of mac addresses. The server is also much more likely to be physically accessible if something goes wrong.
