Right.  There's been quite a bit of activity on this front recently, and
I think there will be a workable solution in the one of the next kernel
versions (2.6.21 or later).  NetworkManager will then require some
support from HAL, but with that we should be able to have a unified
handler for rfkill.

Right now, we're not handling rfkill because there's no way we're going
to pollute the code with 6 driver-specific rfkill procedures.  Plus
there's usually no way to detect that rfkill switches have been pressed
besides polling the driver, which is wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong.
