actually it sort of is mlan. 

from what i've read, mlan seems to deal with finding and connecting
resources rather than actually pushing packets. so mlan lives on top

and while mlan connectivity would be nice from other perspectives, i
would just as soon use a non-compatible (open) method as any.  


PS nothing seems terribly novel (irreplaceable) in the patents i've
	seen (viz, 5,825,752).  
PPS if i see the word 'plurality' again i'm going to swear repeatedly.
