	I guess, that depends on your definition of “LUCI GUI for cake”; as far as I know you can select cake in the “Queueing Discipline” drop down in the “Queue Discipline” tab of luci-app-sqm. So if the machine has the cake module and a sufficiently recent (out-of-tree) tc binary installed it should just work. Using the “Advanced option strings…” it even should be possible to pass arbitrary strings to cake (without any error checking), so I assume we are all set up for cake testing (or should that be cake tasting?) from the LUCI GUI. But I have not managed to build cake locally, nor have I dared to risk my families internet connectivity by trying one of Dave’s newer "openwrt trunk with cake” builds. So these changes linger in the ceropackages-3.10 repository until we get enough tasting to convince Toke to pull them into the openwrt repositories (these changes affect both sqm-scripts and luci-app-sqm). Dave graciously allowed me access to one of his test machines, and the changes allow to set up cake from the GUI, but I only did limited functionality testing. (And we discovered that something was of in that cake worked but did not accept all the keywords it should have, but unless you are on a XDSL-Link you most likely do not care about specifying per-packet-overhead)
	If you have any specific thing you are missing, let me know and I will try to help.

Best Regards
