I vote for permanently enabling monitor mode upon install. (after asking the user of course)

I'd like to propose an amendment to that - at least worth considering - to permanently enable monitor mode when the user selects Airport Extreme passive mode in the Drivers pref pane... then disable it again if and when the user removes that driver from the list. Maybe?

Then again, that could cause airport failures the first time someone uses it, which still isn't desirable. What about scripting in the "stop airport" function from XNetwork?
