Re: Has Debian abandoned Python?

Hi Henrique,

not sure if it fits here, but still interesting.

But probably only for WLAN, not WWAN. And then, I don't want install 
the whole bunch of horrible NM only to switch off my WWAN when I don't
need it and want to save energy.

I cannot comment on that, since I am not using bt.

*Really*?? I was looking into the rfkill code since I reimplemented
the protocol in my python applet and I don't see that. You can
switch on/off one rfkill at a time, and that is NOT a group.

So I am not sure what you mean, maybe I misunderstood you.

And? That is the right way, or?
