"rfkill" package in the archive is just a simple utility for switch
on/off the RF device.
urfkill handles the hotkeys (KEY_WLAN, KEY_BLUETOOTH, KEY_RFKILL, etc)
and can be configurable to behave differently on the key pressed.
Say, one may like the bluetooth to be switched off too on KEY_WLAN,
whereas in fact KEY_WLAN is for Wifi only, at least literally.
