I think that gentoo is missing a tool like laptop-net, but since laptop-net is build for debian and still in his new-born fase, I was thinking of starting a new project, to bring gentoo a tool to easily configure the net on your laptop, dedicated to all that peoples that travels between different wireless network.

*AAAHHHHHWWWWW** (take breath)
Sorry but my written English is very bad, so I often fall in long sentences without commas :P

Returning to the main topic: do you think of it as a long, useless and frustrating effort or may it be a way to improve the feeling with new users (and too-busy users :P)?
I think of it as something resembling kwifimanager (with systray integration), but more integrated with the gentoo init scripts, that can be runned even without kde, or without X, and with this features:

- autodetection of access points in neighborhoods
- recognition of already known access point or network, and auto-configuration for them
- everything you like to suggest.

Ideas?
Volunteers?

Suggestions on the more appropriated language to develop it?
