There was a conversation on #guix today about wpa-supplicant possibly
needing wireless tools in order to work.  Well, I haven't tested that
yet, but I did write a package for the wireless tools.

I don't use the iw* tools a whole lot, so I didn't test everything, but
I did verify that the output of `iwconfig` looked okay.
