I will definitely look into this one. This should be quite easy to implement by messing a bit with the firewall tables :)
Only problem I see is that to make it useful I think it would have to time out at some point. One example I have bought up a few times is my cheap and rather chatty media player. I have not dug into the details exactly but I _know_ it "phones home" regularly and it is definitely a use case where the Tor browser bundle would be impossible. Problem is that one is unattended so if I were to do a captive portal kind of page and that would require a positive acceptance, the Cloak would be useless for this scenario.
Number of wireless networks are not an issue so I _am_ beginning to think that more than two is necessary. For example:
1. Open - Open network - no Tor
2. Transparent proxy - all tcp traffic allowed - forced through Tor - everything on separate circuits - captive warning
3. Transparent proxy as 2 minus captive portal (for gadgets or someone who know what they are doing)
4. Isolating proxy - only https allowed - forced through Tor - everything on separate circuits and everything else blocked
It is not really a problem to make more than two so if this makes the Cloak more flexible I'd say it's the way to go.
