Why do I have wpasupplicant installed if I don't have a wifi interface?

Can anybody tell me why I have wpasupplicant installed, even though I don't have a wifi interface on this machine?

The machine has a single 10/100 twisted pair ethernet interface which is configured "static" in the /etc/network/interfaces file. It does not have any wifi hardware, and (consequently?) no wifi mentioned in interfaces...

If I try to deinstall wpasuplicant, it then wants to also remove network-manager and network-manager-gnome. Should I just let it? What would be the consequences if I do?
