I propose to deprecate these wiconfig flags:

  -c Create IBSS: use ifconfig wi0 mediaopt adhoc, which turns on the
                  802.11-compliant behavior
  -e enable WEP: use ifconfig wi0 nwkey ...
  -f set channel: use ifconfig wi0 chan ch
  -k set WEP keys: use ifconfig wi0 nwkey ...
  -n set desired SSID to join in IBSS mode: use ifconfig wi0 nwid id
  -p set the desired port type: use ifconfig wi0 mediaopt ...
  -q set SSID to create: use ifconfig wi0 nwid ...
  -t set TX rate: ifconfig wi0 media ...
  -A set authentication type: ifconfig wi0 nwkey ...
  -S set maximum sleep interval: ifconfig wi0 powersavesleep ...
  -P enable power management: ifconfig wi0 powersave
  -T select WEP key for transmitted packets: ifconfig wi0 nwkey n:k1,k2,k3,k4
  -Z unimplemented
