[arch-projects] inconsistency between net-auto-wireless and net-auto-wired

i noticed a minor inconsistency between the two daemons.
net-auto-wireless can read WIRELESS_INTERFACE from /etc/conf.d/netcfg,
while net-auto-wired only recognize WIRED_INTERFACE from /etc/rc.conf.
wifi-select also insists that WIRELESS_INTERFACE be set in

the wiki page of netcfg "correctly" instructs users to set
WIRELESS_INTERFACE in /etc/conf.d/netcfg, and WIRED_INTERFACE in
/etc/rc.conf, but the fact that such two similar named and seemingly
similar usage daemons from same project use different configuration
files itself is somewhat wired and un-intuitive.

would it be better to unify the configuration file among netcfg
related utilities and daemons?

thank you for your kind attention.

best regards,
