wireless hardware disable switch forbids the use of external wifi cards

Hi, I have a really bad internal wireless card. If I disable it and try
to use an external PCIMCA card, the network manager will not let me do
this since wireless option is automatically disabled based on the switch
state. I was wondering whether anyone has noted this, since imho this is
a serious issue. Why can't we have a per device control like in windows,
where each network adaptor has its own set of enable/disable controls. A
quick solution to this problem would be I think to revert to Nm 0.6
behaviour, where hardware switch did not affect the software state and
everything worked fine. If anyone has worked on a patch that does this,
please let me know. Thanks, Mikhail
