Default iw package (Was: Debian 2.6.32 CONFIG_WIRELESS_OLD_REGULATORY, wireless-regdb and crda)

Hello,

> BTW -- while we're on the topic of 2.6.32 and the next Debian release,
> and 802.11, do you guys ship iw by default yet? If not I highly

> used by all cfg80211 and mac80211 drivers. All new upstream drivers

Description: tool for configuring Linux wireless devices
This package contains the `iw' tool which allows you to configure and show
information about wireless networking.
.
In the future iw will become the canonical command line tool for wireless
configuration and iwconfig/wireless-tools will no longer be required. See
/usr/share/doc/iw/README.Debian for a more detailed overview of iw.
Homepage: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw
Tag: implemented-in::c, network::configuration, role:rogram, use::configuring

so it exists, but for now this isn't installed by default.

Best regards
Uwe
