I've got a few patches I've been meaning to upstream from the Fedora
wpa_supplicant RPMs.  There are some additions to the dbus interface to
support BLOBs, some scanning behavior fixes, etc.  They probably
shouldn't block the release, but FYI that I'll be posting them for
comment/submission for both 0.5.x and 0.6.x.
