I have actually considered doing almost exactly the same thing.  What I
was planning on doing was writing a php page that the user would log in
with.  When they do, then php would run a system command using their IP
to add a netfilter (iptables) firewall rule.  There would then be a cron
job that runs daily to restart the firewall, thus the added rules would
be removed.
