If you want me to understand what it's about, you may want to
give me a bit more context.
Alternatively, just send me a patch for Wireless Tools, and
I'll put it in the next release. Wireless Tools is still maintained
and I still do releases, even if I don't put much cycles into it.
Have a great day...
