So why should we have getwifi in the archive in addition to
waproamd? Note that I know that waproamd has problems, so if you are
working to address those problems, that's great. However, please do
not just duplicate the functionality. I suggest you install waproamd
and check it out.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
