I belive there is support in 802.11 to not just disconnect clients but 
instruct them to roam to a different AP.  This is what airspace (cisco), 
ruckus, aruba, etc do with their controller boxes.

Unforunately, you're right, the Unifi software only does client-decsision 
routing (which doesn't work for shit) and not directed roaming. :(


Oh well, we can keep looking.
