The problem (in my case) is that I don't have control over the AP
configurations.  I would be perfectly happy to use the
currently-supported WPA algorithms if I had the ability to do so.

If it's easy enough for a power user to do, will nokia also work to
support it in the built-in connection manager?  Since we've
established that it's a semi-standard problem for IT users?
