There was the wpasupplicant-udeb bug that was closed mid-2011 and that
I posted earlier in the thread - and it must've been tracked by
debian-boot in some way.

So from debian-boot's perspective, they've made the change and noted
that it's been made through "
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller/WheezyGoals ". Not necessarily
the best way for us (users) to find out but I'm glad that the
feature's available and hope that there'll be some more widespread,
official announcement at some point - even if it's only through a
first draft of the Wheezy Release Notes - as a matter of procedure.
