I hadn't either. But I found it useful when trying netcfg with my Atheros 
card as it shows what's happening while netcfg is running, so it's useful 
for debugging. Without it you basically have no idea what is happening.

Example when running it on VT2 and then starting netcfg:
<timestamp> wlan0 Set Mode:Managed
<timestamp> wlan0 Set Encryption key:on
<timestamp> wlan0 Set Encryption key:off
<timestamp> wlan0 Set ESSID:off/any

Also, it's not that big: 11kB.

I'll start the changes.
