We are not that cruel.  :-)

Recently, I added a password saving feature to settings. It will save all 
passwords after a successful connection attempt to a protected network in a 
file. This file (/etc/wifi.conf) is human readable. You could add a section 
for your network there. The format looks like that:

[00:11:22:33:44:55] // your networks bssid
password = 012345 // your password
description = Openmoko // essid (optional)

I guess it will take 1-2 days until this feature is through our queue and ends 
up in Om2008.8-update.
