Yes, netcfg is one of (many) D-I components.

Sure. No problem with this, of course.

We unfortuunately are missing someone taking care to process netcfg
bug reports and wishlist requests. Neraly nothing happened in that
package during the lenny->squeeze release cycle.

(the fact that netcfg is one of the few d-i packages written in C
might be a reason...another being the surprisingly low number of
people now working on D-I)

Thanks for the hint about this wishlist already existing. That's
already some kind of help!
