Subject: Wifi support for iproute2

Hello

I've always felt uncomfortable by the usability of the wireless-tools
(iwconfig, iwlist), but I really love iproute2. That's why I started to
implement "ip wifi".

My GIT tree is located at:
  http://cthulhu.c3d2.de/~astro/git/iproute2.git/

I wonder if this has a chance to get merged in iproute2 somewhen at all,
or if this is completely inappropriate functionality for this tool.

Note that this my first contribution to a Linux-specific tool, *any*
hints about style and conventions demanded here are welcome.

I'm sure not everyone will use this instead of wireless-tools, and a few
even don't want it compiled in and linked with iwlib. Should I make this
optional through a Makefile variable?

If noone else contributes not all of wireless-tools will be implemented,
it's just too much. But basic stuff for configuring a Wifi card is
already there.

Everyone told me dscape is near, but I hope iwlib will be ported then.
