nothing in the initscripts themselves actually references or touches
netcfg2 -- it's entirely seperate now.

The reason for the depends was originally... this is a "breaking" change.
People upgrade initscripts, and they no longer have any wireless scripts.
Though it's a breaking change either way -- the configs are not backwards

Further, should I entirely remove /etc/conf.d/wireless too, or just
rewrite it to be 'compatible' with netcfg2? I don't want to support it in
it's present state.
