Cool! I see potential for an(other) authentication scheme. But it
should be something that works with common and existing hardware, such
as prism, atheros, etc. I'm told that such hardware does not allow
insertion of data into packets. Been using ESSID & BSSID to send auth
data and that's really slow.
