If you want to start now and don't mind doing some conversion later when
the WE version is ready, I would suggest starting with the current
hostap/wpa_supplicant code. Changes to WE version should be quite
trivial. I would expect to see at least couple of changes for the WE
proposal, so it is still a somewhat moving target.
