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.
