Well, I think the point is, that ixpc is for general use
and not for wmii only. The same applies for IXP_ADDRESS.
But wmii sets (and exports) IXP_ADDRESS to point to the
wmii filesystem, so no other program can use it anymore...
Either one should explicitly pass the wmii-address to ixpc
on any call or have a modified ixpc (=wmiir) which uses
At least, the way it is now appears inconsistent to me:
ixpc is for wmii only, but has a general name.

Actually, a simple wrapper (called wmiir) that takes the
address from WMII_ADDRESS and passes it on to ixpc would
do the job.
