I that topic, I heard that Confine developed a way to export real
Wlan0 interfaces inside a container so that routing daemons sees a
wlan type instead of an eth type interface.

Any idea where to find that code?

"In July 2005, after several failed attempts to legalise software
patents in Europe, the patent establishment changed its strategy.
Instead of explicitly seeking to sanction the patentability of
software, they are now seeking to create a central European patent
court, which would establish and enforce patentability rules in their
favor, without any possibility of correction by competing courts or
democratically elected legislators."
