Yeah, I plan to spend not too much time on this sort of "polish" stuff
myself; it's the kind of thing that's a good task for someone who wants
to help, but I need to look at more fundamental issues.

I fixed this (with ) which Ray rightly rejected, I just haven't had a moment to switch to the .d hook.

But I'm not sure it hasn't regressed or there's some other issue here.

I pretty much gutted the sysvinit stuff in disgust; this one would get
fixed when switching to systemd.

the biggest architectural gap at the moment, and it's what I need
to fix so that picking a wireless network actually works.
