Wild idea, but dhcpcd can be compiled with dbus support and I believe
dbus can be accessed over the network (dunno how though...).  You can
write simple scripts to access dbus and I believe there are some gui
dbus tools - quite possibly you can put that lot together...?

Actually if you do have a play with all of the above please report on
how you get on, even partially?

Good luck
