And it is _absolutely_ necessary.  When my wireless NIC started to get flakey, 
I was finding that wpa_supplicant was actually killing the connection (the 
hardware would lose the connection and without wpa_supplicant, it would seem 
to reconnect, but with it the device would time out before wpa_supplicant 
finished its job), but I couldn't disable wpa_supplicant at all.
