Thank you very much for the hard work and effort for making 802.11 work on
DragonFly; this will go a long way.  I am in total support for bringing in
the ifconfig utility from FreeBSD -CURRENT as it has such a better modular
and command parsing architecture.  It will need to be kept in sync with
the changes we have made, mostly kernel data structures, etc.

I'm glad to see FreeBSD's ifconfig in our tree as well, but what about our 
neat features like e.g. interface renaming? Will we lose that for a while? Or 
is that easy to add?
Interface renaming will not be a problem because it is  a feature we took 
from FreeBSD
in the first place, again, written by Brooks Davis. :-)
