Hmm, one could do that, but what if you just want the pcmcia card you
put in to work, picking the right syle automatically? What I did is made
sure I use the same field names and values as the "old" stuff and detect
in my script what kind of card it is. Once wireless-tools gets updated
with a simple patch that sould work great.

In particular, the pcmcia stuff. Is it possible to do that yet w/o
patching the pcmcia scripts, and if not, is that patch something tha
could sanely go into pcmcia?
