As you can see, your first patch inspired a rewrite. I prefer my
version, as it has a little less duplicate code.
The discussion is thus on whether we want wifi-menu to unblock the
wireless signal. I still think this kind of defeats the idea of
rfkill. Its not hard to unblock outside of wifi-menu, agreed?
