I have a long term goal of seeing a merged (or at least mostly common)
{Net,Free,Open}BSD 802.11 stack, similar to some of the items in
onoe-san's list.  It would be good to have a common infrastructure
that we can all leverage.  It would also be cool to have an effective
daemon that could do more complex things than the standard says
(filtering based on MAC address, doing different types of packet level
encryption, 802.1x, and other experimental things).

It would also be good to have a common interface to set the output
power of the cards (for those that support this).  Maybe there's
enough interest to have a specific list on this.
