Not good for many situations. For example:

Currently my wireless NIC (Intel 2200BG) uses a out-of-kernel driver.

Whenever Fedora releases an updated kernel and I reboot kudzu wants to
remove my wireless NIC as I haven't recompiled my driver yet.

I DO NOT want kudzu removing the configuration (very very long WEP keys,
and other hand entered wireless settings).

The behavior, as described, is unacceptable IMHO.
