The ifup-wireless is a special script that is run when you bring up 
a wireless interface. The ifup-eth script checks uses the 
network-functions function is_wireless_device to detect wireless 
devices, and runs the ifup-wireless script if it is. All the 
ifdown-eth script check for is a left over wireless encryption key.
