[if I understand you correctly] I agree.  With ethtool, the idea is to 
have a single tool that supports multiple hardware platforms -- even to 
the point of introducing hardware-specific code into ethtool.

While I agree with wireless-dev that wireless /needs/ a separate tool, 
for things like bridging and vlan it would certainly be nice to mitigate 
the tool count explosion.
