This is something I would like to do quite soon.. I have already re-designed (and -written) host-based WEP stuff to be modularized. Current version supports loading new algorithms (or wrappers to things like kerneli) as kernel modules and using the WEP module as base, it should be quite easy to add wrapper for kerneli algorithms. In addition, the new code supports key mapping so that individual encryption key and algorithm configuration can be done for each station.

There is still one known race situation (involving situation when crypt conf is removed/changed) and I haven't yet tested all parts. As soon as these are resolved, I'll commit the new code to CVS and start experimenting with support for other algorithms.
