Well, we're going to put wpa_supplicant into Core soon, largely to
support NetworkManager.  There's a requirement that Core has to be
self-hosting, which means you can't have packages from Core depend on
ones in Extras.  In any case, the result is the same.  I don't know if
this will make FC5, but may appear as an update shortly after that.
