Well, a tool in netcfg for wireless configuration is necessary, but AIF shouldn't treat wireless interfaces the same as wired interfaces. I am unclear on the proper way to detect this in the days of deprecated iwconfig (Thomas? How would you list wired and wireless interfaces separately?) That covers #1 and #3.
Regarding direct editing of wpa_supplicant... I don't think that's "advanced" as Thomas suggests. It's heavily commented and not really that complex.
We still have no way in Arch to use "plain" wpa_supplicant, as it will never perform any IP configuration on its own. That's why we have net-auto-wireless.
Hm? I added my network to /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, and ran wpa_supplicant -Dwext -something something something and the dhcpcd wlan0, and everything worked as expected. I'm not sure what you're talking about here
