No it's not the only option. Rest of the message is starting to be off
topic for Host AP mailing list, so further discussion about ndsiwrapper
should be moved to its mailing lists.

NDIS drivers seem to have somewhat unfortunate mechanism for
implementing AP scan for given SSID, so it may take some time to figure
out a clean way of doing this with wpa_supplicant. Anyway, this is being
worked on.
