Hmm, I'm not sure about that.  If I'm connecting in a cafe, I don't
really want to see the list of SSIDs that I normally have at home and at
work as well - which is what seems to happen at the moment.  Even if
they are all marked as "unavailable", it's messy for them to be there.
Also I guess the cafe's SSID might then be added at the end of the list
in a position where I can't see it without scrolling down.

I definitely agree with this.

Once a wireless connection is established, though, does QtMoko need to
carry on scanning periodically in the background?  Does it use more
energy to do that?
