What I was trying to tell you is that your power saving problem probably
has nothing to do with NetBSD's lack of WME functionality and therefore
having WME as a feature won't solve your problem.  802.11 was able to do
power saving before 802.11e came along.  I never used wme on FreeBSD, yet
my mobile phone is able to do some sort of power saving since I upgraded
to FreeBSD 8.0.

Also worth mentioning:  While trying to solve said problem on FreeBSD
7.0 I tried to enable wme and it didn't help a bit.  The connection was
still unreliable and one had to disable power saving on certain devices
in order to make them work properly.
