I already responded on arch-general. I already created an iw package and 
I was able to compile crda (no PKGBUILD yet). iw is only useful for 
setting up "the new stuff" (like mesh mode), but cfg80211 is still 
unable to do the basic settings like ssid, so iwconfig will remain the 
main configuration tool for a while.

Anyway, I'd like to add iw to extra as some people may find it useful.

I'd also like to add crda to extra, so people with compat-wireless can 
try using the new regulatory management (2.6.27 is required for such 
recent compat-wirless releases). Once 2.6.28 is released, we can move 
crda to core and disable the old static regdom code in the kernel (crda 
will then be necessary for using wireless).

If you have any objections to adding iw and crda to extra, you may speak 
now or forever hold your peace.
