       A few things:

           1. I primarily use Wicd, so I haven't tested NetworkManager

           2. The documentation I've been using for NetworkManager is
           for version, and in the NEWS file (and before anyone
           asks, I already checked the ChangeLog in the source I have)
           in the source code, I found that they indeed added
           RequestScan to NetworkManager in version 0.9.6.  The specific
           entry is "* Add on-demand WiFi scan support".  I will see
           what if there is anything I can do about this, although it
           seems like there isn't much.  However, 0.9.6 is the next
           version after 0.9.4, so I assume that the update will find
           its way to other distros soon.

           3. To anyone who hasn't ready any of the previous
           emails, you do need to add "(require 'enwc-setup)" and
           "(enwc-setup)" to your .emacs file.  I apologize for not
           mentioning this before, and have added it to the enwc.el

           4. When using Wicd, scanning does take a little while, since
           I needed it to block, otherwise the scan would complete in
           the background after ENWC finished it, so the displayed
           results would be invalid.  For me, it only takes a few
           seconds to complete the scan.
