I'm assuming you are talking about Wi-Fi Protected Setup here (there are
way too many different things called WPS)..

There hasn't been much interest in this so far, so I haven't had any
real urgency in providing support for it. Furthermore, I don't think the
WPS specification is even publicly available yet. I would assume that
support for WPS will be added at some point, but it is not very high on
my priority list at the moment.
