Okay, so it is a "pass-through" design feature ;-)   Too bad, but such 
is life.  As I indicated in my full message, just putting a sentence in 
the man page for ap-config indicating why zeros appear for the WEP key 
values would help new users understand that the WEP keys really are 
being set.   And/or perhaps a similar sentence in the menu box showing 
the WEP key values would be enough help.
