Maybe I'm confusing the jessie upgrade with the wheezy one, but i was
under the impression that a major upgrade may drop some
license-encumbred firmare that may eventually disable the wifi card

One of the things the Web teaches us is that everything is connected
(hyperlinks) and we all should work together (standards). Too often
school teaches us that everything is separate (many different
'subjects') and that we should all work alone.
