[Trac #1406] Airplane mode for wireless.

#1406: Airplane mode for wireless.
 Reporter:  jg           |       Owner:  Eben 
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new 
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  BTest-4
Component:  distro       |    Keywords: 
 We need a user interface (and underlying software support) for disabling
 wireless on airplanes.

 In principle, it could be as simple as telling people to use the console
 to issue a command "/sbin/ifdown eth0", or something more elegant.  It
 should not be too easy; we want the children leaving their wireless on.

 This is a bug to focus discussion on this issue, rather than necessarily
 causing any actual programming to be requested; we just need to make up
 our collective mind how to deal with this problem.
