Or, preferably, some higher-level netprofile system like the one Sean
proposed on xdg-list and I linked to last week. Really, I was thinking
about applications requiring access to e.g. a certain IP address.

Mmm.. Remember that some of the devices in HAL are a bit flaky if you
want to draw a picture this black and white; like partitions or pure
software emulations of hardware devices like the SCSI glue for
usb-storage. Either way, it's a fine measuring stick. I'm fine with
removing the wireless detection code.
