As someone who's currently hacking on 802.11(n) drivers, I'm kind of scared
by the idea that dense, high bandwidth wireless apps may be the norm soon.

It's difficult enough in some dense neighbors -getting- a stable 802.11bg
connection; I'd hate to see 11n (2.4ghz or 5ghz) - espceially if you're wanting
to do up to 300mbit over a 40mhz channel. Aiee.

(That said, I know how to tell -my- cards to just transit, screw the surrounding
air. Some companies sell that as a feature. :)
