Correct, UXA support isn't working right now, there is some stuff which needs to 
be added to the FreeBSD kernel to make it run properly. Maybe for 8.0 :)

I'll re-examine this for 8.0. Right now all the profiles are saved in your wpa_supplicant,
when you disable it, they get erased. I may be able to store them elsewhere though in a 
future version.

Correct, this must wait for 8.0 as well. I originally had this support, but
too often the scan was incorrect, or showed an open connection, which it was secured.

Yea, that stuff hasn't been ported over from Linux yet, feel free to take a crack at it :)
