support ip and iw, instead of ifconfig, route, iwconfig

Registered by Egor on 2012-10-04

WICD should start supporting ip and iw, instead of ifconfig, route, and iwconfig, which are all going to be deprecated.

This should be a 2-step process: first, let the user choose which "system" to use (also check whether it's possible to use ifconfig + iw, or ip + iwconfig -- I think yes); second, completely drop ifconfig/route/iwconfig in favour of the newer and better alternatives.
