Having it beforehand tends to make things easier if there are any
queries or issues.

In all honesty, I haven't yet had time to review them; I mostly replied
at this point because of the diff noise - if it hadn't been for that,
I'd probably not have commented until I (or someone else) had checked
them a little more.
Looking at the BTS, it appears from the log of #601803 that the proposed
changes to ifconfig for wireless support have not yet been proved to be
complete and functional in unstable - is that correct? Where the issue
applies to both stable and unstable/testing, having it resolved in the
latter suites is generally a prerequisite for a stable update.
