Would you have any interest in allowing kismac to optionally use the 
apple driver in those situations when another driver won't load (as in 
the airport extreme now)? It would be much less capable, but might be 
nice for those of us comfortable with the user interface and don't want 
to switch over to MacStumbler...

Another use would be in those situations where you want to "stumble/log 
in" and (I presume) using the airport driver would let us run kismac 
and connect to a remote network.
