I replied to one of Jouni's posts on this list a week or so ago about encryption but I didn't check the email address and it went to him directly. He was kind enough to reply:

I'm not very keen on supporting WEP (due to insecurity), but I'm planning on implementing host driver based encyption that could be used to easily implement WEP (as a separate kernel module). In addition, I have heard of someone who claimed to have implemented WEP to the driver, but source code for that has not been released as far as I know.
