What my roomate and I did for this (check out http://biteme.dorm.umd.edu/) 
was to write a small program that looked at the PPM file, and averaged 
the pixel brightness...if it is below 30, it'd adjust the white balance 
appropriately and the same goes for above 30. The camera takes a picture 
every 3 seconds or so, and just displays the most recent to the 
user...works neat, check it out.
