guruplug: uap access point possibilities

hey folks--

i finally got the guruplug i ordered from globalscale technologies.  It
ships with debian lenny plus a special kernel, which is nice.  I'm
curious about what's not quite in debian yet, though:

 * there appears to be a special driver (uap8xxx.ko) for the "micro
access point" -- the ability to run the wireless device in access point

 * there is a corresponding userspace utility /usr/bin/uaputl, which
enables setting of certain features of that driver.

I haven't sorted out the source for either of these things, but i found
links referring to maybe-source of the kernel module at least here:

Any thoughts on whether this uap business might make it into debian?

Happy Hacking,
