i think the whole pcmcia-cs-works-better-for-wireless argument is not quite valid.
think about 54mbit cardbus WLAN cards. they are _not_ handled by any script from
pcmcia-cs because they show up as normal PCI devices. and in fact cardmgr
won't even notice when you insert such a card. so i'd say it _needs_ to be
handled in the net hotplug script (/etc/hotplug/net.agent) _anyway_.

[side note: the conversion to a real bus and real hotplug support (and
 letting cardmgr die) is the only right thing to do. IMO it _simplifies_
 the whole picture a lot.]
