Tomato's interface is pretty user-friendly. I just thought it would come handy to have a few custom-command buttons, assigned by user, if necessary - say, to start/stop certain optware services (like transmission or any other server) to have a better control over CPU load in run-time, without opening telnet, or whatever. This customizable toggle button section could nicely fit Administration / Buttons Section.

Still think it could be a nice web-GUI feature that facilitates both permanent setup and debugging stages. For example, making up/removing a swap file when the system seems over-/underloaded could be one-click automated, as dozens of other useful jobs, according to one's preferences. Technically, it could be web-scripted as a dynamic array of start/stop buttons (with empty fields for adding start/stop linux scripts), similar to those dynamic arrays that we have in Firewall Rules, QOS, or Static Leases sections. Thus, custom control elements just support and extend an overall logic of TomatoUSB web GUI, in its flexible best.
So, what do you think about it? Not enough sophisticated to be worth implementing? ;)
You need to search around some more. Tomato already has the facilities so that you could already do all this stuff yourself. All you need to do is write the scripts.

Something like these would be very far down on my to-do list. Probably TeddyBear's, too. But luckily it's opensource and there are plenty of knowledgable people to consult with, if you run into problems.
"Read the source, Luke."
okay, I'd try it sometime, after studying possibilities of lighttpd under Tomato. Imagine your to-do lists, though. Keep on doing this great job, guys.
BTW, do you plan to open "Tutorial Clubs" branch on this particular forum? Such minor enhancements could be fairly well developed on such scene.
