Um, *which* distro's are shipping it already?  RHEL4?  SLES10?  I
thought we saw a note saying that even Debian **unstable** didn't have
a new enough version of the wireless-tools....
That was my point initially. FC5-latest is apparently carrying
tools which are "too old"... and I yum update twice or thrice
a week. Not that *I* minded building packages from source,
but this is likely a bit too much for a good slice of the userbase.
