There's no interactive part. I just invoke "sudo ifup wlan0" on console
(this is because I have neither "auto wlan0" nor "allow-hotplug wlan0"
on my /etc/network/interfaces: I actually want to decide whether to
wlan or not) -- and seconds later I have a connection. That's all.

What gives you the list of potential WiFi hosts, to choose from?  (These LAN Parties may be at a Coffee House I haven't been to before). 

That's what I meant by "Interactive".
