Sure, and that's good. However, text editors can happily live next
to each other, while multiple Wifi configuration tools will bite
each other.

Debian has about 7 network auto-configuration scripts (guessnet,
whereami, ...), and none of them do everything they should without
problems. Thus, all I am trying to do is to encourage you to
invest your time in such a way that it solves existing problems,
rather than to create new ones.

I am not saying that waproamd is the way to go. As a matter of fact,
I would think that it won't be hard to create something better and
more robust. However, in order to do so, you must check it out

I also encourage you to take a look at guessnet, which is the only
autoconfiguration tool in true Debian spirit. It is likely going to
be integrated into Debian more and more in the future, so it would
be great if you could integrate with it.

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