Perhaps an installer-interactive option?

        [ ]  Enable Airport Extreme passive scanning

?  Just an idea...

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?

Agreed -- please consider any of these options _only_ if the user is actually using the Airport adapter for capture/scanning. I use a PCCard adapter (Senao/Prism) with KisMAC, and I'd rather not have it mucking with my Airport adapter _at_all_.
