For historical reasons, we call the 802.11 ssid an "nwid" in our
ifconfig. This seems wrong -- it is confusing to people used to the
real terminology as used in most operating systems.

I would like to propose changing "nwid" to "ssid", with "nwid" left in
as an alias for back compatibility. Opinions?
