Sure, I understand. Sorry if you felt this like a kind of pressure to
have you do what you don't want. It would be a shame, given the great
work you did already on netcfg...

I think that, anyway, the merge work of these WPA patches, which you
did, is already a great progress, and having it so early in the
squeeze release process will certainly motivate someone to make it

I suggest we wait for some mor einput, then the release of
squeeze....then merge everything in netcfg, upload it to
unstable....so that at least daily builds have your changes (and I can
work on the needed debconf templates).
