I would like to add three new packages into the [extra]-repository. They
are more or less necessary because they are new (opt-)dependencies for

wicd has an additional new user interface, it's curses-based and a
great alternative to the pyGTK interface for non-X11 usage. But to
use it you will need "python-urwid", it's in [comunity].

That's the first package I want to add and the other two packages are
necessary for the new ioctl experimental, optional backend (allegedly
less CPU intensive). The packages are "python-wpactrl" and
"python-iwscan". They aren't packaged or in AUR, I have created the
necessary PKGBUILD and packages.

- python-urwid for the curses interface
- python-wpactrl and python-iwscan for the new ioctl experimental
  backend (http://projects.otaku42.de/wiki/PythonWpaCtrl and
