work right now, btw. I'm using them on my laptop as we speak. ("beep".

There's an extremeley basic /etc/pcmcia/network replacement amongst
the comments in /etc/network/interfaces.

This isn't necessarily ready for prime-time inclusion in pcmcia*.deb,
(in particular it doesn't duplicate all that network.opts copes with as
conveniently just yet) but the possibility's there nevertheless.
