        Not true.  There is the IOXperts driver, but as mentioned before, 
it is closed source.

        Now, if anyone is interested, I understand that the author of the 
original bsd airtools software is interested in porting his stuff to 
work natively under MacOS X.  I've tried it under FreeBSD, and it 
most definitely rocks.  It's not as pretty as KisMAC, but it's got a 
lot more features and there has been a lot more development time put 
into it.  It can certainly handle long lists of APs, because I've 
done it.
